Kris Commons feels the need to bring former Celtic manager Ronny Deila into his latest article, the Norwegian didn’t have anything to do with the story.
We all love Ronny Deila and even though he tried to completely change the way Celtic were set up and somewhat failed, he still won trophies at the club.
Ronny lacked the experience needed to make Celtic a force again in Europe but in other ways exceeded expectations as the Norwegian made the club play a more fitter style of football.
Kris Commons has rapidly morphed into his counterparts in the media and lives his life knocking Celtic anyway he can, yes Steve Clarke has done a brilliant job with Scotland but Celtic had nothing to do with it and Commons is just trying to get the views.
“When the time comes for supporters to return to games, you can guarantee that Hampden will be sold-out as we move towards next summer’s European Championships.” Commons wrote in his column as cited by SunSport.
“Clarke hasn’t just lifted the sense of apathy. He has shattered it and the entire nation is dancing on the pieces to the sound of a cheesy pop tune by Baccara. It’s a bizarre but brilliant story.
“Once that sense of apathy and indifference sets in, it can be really hard to shift it and get the fans back onside. Trust me, it’s easier said than done.
“I can relate to that from my time at Celtic. During the Ronny Deila days, the top tier of Celtic Park was quite often closed for European games.
“You try and block it out as much as you can as a player when you’re on the pitch. But it still doesn’t look great when you’ve got large swathes of empty seats.
“That was one of the first things Brendan Rodgers identified when he took charge. He knew he had to get the supporters believing in the team once again.
“Clarke knows the value of making your home stadium a fortress. That was one of the first things he knew he had to fix when he took over at Kilmarnock.”
We all know that Commons didn’t like Ronny Deila as the Hoops boss tried to change too much at the one time, the pair had numerous bust-ups and the players were the ones who failed the club, not Deila.
When you have your best players spitting the dummy out and stepping out of line what else can you do.
