Celtic boss Lennon adulates goal hero Commons

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has heaped praise on Kris Commons after he scored the only goal in Sunday's 1-0 win at Inverness.

The 30-year old netted inside four minutes as the Hoops extended their winning streak in the Scottish Premier League to seven matches.

Commons has now scored 19 league goals for a season tally of 15 thus far which prompted plenty of adoration from his boss.

"He is wonderful and he is in wonderful form," Lennon said.

"I thought the goal was brilliant and when you see Kris in those positions you get disappointed when he doesn't score, he's that good at it.

"That is 15 for the season for us now, so he has been absolutely huge for me in the past couple of years and I think he will only get better."
