Former Celtic star, Kris Commons, has spoke out on why former team mate Joe Ledley, left the club.

Ledley left the Celts to join Crystal Palace in 2014, with less than six months on his contract.

Neil Lennon at the time said Ledley didn’t want to renew his contract, with the club keen to discuss tying him down to a longer contract.

Commons, in his Daily Mail column said: “Wouldn’t it have been better giving Boyata an extra three or four thousand pounds a week?

“When I played, Joe Ledley left Lennoxtown in tears. He didn’t want to go. Gary Hooper was another who would have stayed and wasn’t asking for the world. Georgios Samaras was another.

“That’s what infuriated Neil Lennon in his first spell: an inability to keep hold of his best players.”
