It’s been an emotional season for the Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern, who’ve seen the 50th anniversary of the Lisbon Lions celebrated in such style under Brendan Rodgers.
Having won the domestic treble during an unbeaten campaign in Scotland, the Bhoys in the bar are absolutely delighted about the direction of the club. Under Rodgers’ stewardship, there promises to be some bright new dawns indeed.
Still, to usher in the new, you must rid of the old and reports from BBC Scotland have jerked a few tears amongst our resident Hoops. Parkhead stalwart Kris Commons has hinted he may retire after leaving the green and white cause following a trophy-laden six and a half years in Glasgow.
The 33-year-old didn’t feature at all under Rodgers this season and joined Hibernian on loan for a few games in January, though has been open in speaking about his spate of injury problems. Indeed, the former Nottingham Forest and Derby County man has suggested he could call an end to his illustrious playing career.
“There are plenty of options out there and that’s not just football. It’s the other side as well, coaching, media”, said the former Scotland international.
”There’s plenty of doors open.”
“I still feel I have got unfinished business playing but the doubt for me is can I get to the level where I’m going to be the Kris Commons everyone knows.”
“If I’m not, then there’s no point dwindling away. I’d rather finish on a relative high.”
