Celtic ace Commons lands monthly SPFL award

Kris Commons has landed the SPFL Player of the month award for December.

The attacking midfielder scored four goals in five outings as the Hoops recorded five victories without conceding a goal.

Commons, who has since taken his season tally to 12, was delighted to land the prize following some good performances for the Glasgow giants.

"It was a good month for me with the two performances against Hearts and Motherwell the highlight," said Commons.

"The clean sheet record speaks for itself and obviously going forward we've scored a hatful of goals.

"Coming on the back of being knocked out of the Champions League, December was a good month for us and it gave the supporters something to cheer about.

"In terms of goals, in the summer I would have been looking at double figures for the season but now I am targeting 20-plus."
