Kris Commons: Enjoying his football in Glasgow
Kris Commons insists he has no intention of leaving Celtic in the summer and returning to English football.
The former Nottingham Forest and Derby forward was strongly linked with a switch to Southampton during the January transfer window.
While no move materialised then, it has been suggested that the Scotland international could be lured away from Parkhead at the end of the season.
Commons, though, is adamant that he will not be pushing for a switch, with it his desire to stick with a club he only joined in January 2011.
"No, not at all," he said when asked if he would be open to a summer exit.
"I love it here. It is the best club I have ever played for.
"I love living in Glasgow and playing with such quality players week in, week out is magnificent. I couldn't think of anywhere better to play my football."
Commons is reluctant to walk away from Celtic on the back of what he admits has been a hugely frustrating campaign on a personal level, with 'niggling injuries' preventing him from playing a leading role in the Bhoys' title chase.
"This season has been hindered by niggling injuries and pretty poor performances early on by my standards," he said.
"It has been frustrating for me but hopefully everything I have been working for in the last 12 or 13 months will pay off."
