Commons: I never considered Rangers

Celtic have completed the signing of Derby winger Kris Commons for a fee in the region of £300,000, with the Hoops' new signing moving quickly to deny that he had been considering an offer from Rangers.

Commons passed a medical and agreed personal terms with the Hoops on Thursday before the finishing touches were applied to a three-and-a-half-year deal on Friday.

Celtic, who have an option to extend Commons' initial deal by an additional year, were reported to have beaten off competition from Rangers for his signature, but the winger has insisted he was never considering joining the Gers.

Asked if he had spoken to Rangers, Commons replied: "No. I think it was mainly talk from yourselves (media). There was no talk from our side. The things that went in the press - the wages, the money - was all nonsense.

"Once I knew Celtic's interest, it was an easy decision for me. I would have chosen Celtic, no matter what. I would go as far as to say it's a dream come true. The opportunity to play in front of 60,000 people week in, week out is magnificent for me.

"It's a young talented squad and hopefully I will enhance that and give me my best footballing years of my career. I will try to create and make goals and hopefully I can show all my qualities.''

Derby chief executive Tom Glick issued a statement to his club's official website explaining the decision to sell Commons, who had rejected a new deal after lengthy talks.

"Our discussions with Kris over a new contract began back in October and he made it abundantly clear he wanted to stay at Derby County,'' Glick said. "Kris stated this publicly in the local media as well, so the fans were hearing the same messages as us.

"Likewise, we made it very obvious we wanted him to stay and build on the success he has had in a Derby County shirt. When we began discussions with Kris, he gave us a figure in terms of wages and length of contract that he was looking for.

"After lengthy negotiations with Kris' agent, we put an offer on the table to match exactly what Kris requested. Two weeks ago we thought we were almost done and dusted because we had a productive meeting and made the offer that Kris had requested.

"By this point however, it became apparent that Kris wasn't going to sign the contract that was on offer to him. We then decided, as a club, that it was in our best interests to accept Celtic's offer to sign Kris now for an undisclosed fee.

"It is disappointing to lose Kris, he is a very talented footballer and we always wanted him to stay. We did everything we could to make him stay and we offered a very good deal to him."

Meanwhile, Celtic midfielder James Forrest has signed a new five-year contract. The 19-year-old has made 15 first-team appearances for the club since making his debut towards the end of last season.
