Commons was stretchered off in first-half stoppage time at St Mirren Park after colliding with his team-mate Beram Kayal.

The 29-year-old, who had put Celtic ahead in the sixth minute, required prolonged treatment before leaving the pitch and there were fears he could face a lengthy absence.

However Commons underwent a scan on Thursday which showed no serious damage and he is hoping to be playing again in the near future.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon confirmed the Scotland international will be given a chance to prove his fitness at training today.

Commons tweeted on Friday morning: "For those askin about my injury, I got the all clear from MRI yesterday so hoping to be back very soon."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
