Kris Commons, Celtic Hero, Shows Off Dead Leg (PICTURES)

Kris Commons, Celtic's hero of the hour after he scored the winning goal to send them into the Champions League knockout stage, tweeted the grim outcome of playing through the pain barrier as he revealed pictures of his swollen dead leg.


Bruised and battered, Commons added the state of his left leg was "Worth it to get in last 16" and added "Buzzin is a understatement" after Celtic progressed for only the second time under the Champions League format..


Commons smashed in an 82nd minute penalty after Giorgios Samaras was adjudged to have been fouled by Marek Suchy to regain the Bhoys their lead.
