Celtic's Commons: There is no pressure on England return

Kris Commons insists he is happy at Celtic as he ponders the next stage of his career.

The Hoops are likely to take up a 12-month option on the former Stoke City, Nottingham Forest and Derby County attacking midfielder this summer although the 30-year old would like something with a bit more longevity.

The possibility of returning to England has mentioned but Commons, who has 26 goals this season, suggests he is happily settled in Glasgow and would look at a contract extension if it came his way.

"It's out of my hands. Once the season is over we can sit down and figure something out. It would be nice to stay longer as I love playing for the club," he told the Daily Record.

"We are looking at schools in Glasgow. My kids are already in nurseries and pre-school.

"My oldest is four and she will be looking to get into a proper primary school soon. My kids are close together in terms of age so it is always at the back of my mind.

"But there's no pressure to go back to England."
