Celtic’s Kris Commons takes a dig at Rangers, offers to let Juventus train in his garden

Celtic, the darlings of the Champions League this season and reason for Rod Stewart's tears, will play Juventus in the round of 16. For some, facing the formidable Italian champions might be cause for quiet focus, but for Celtic's Kris Commons, it's just a chance to make jokes about Rangers being in the Scottish Third Division.

From The Herald:

The Italian side have been offered the use of Rangers' Murray Park training ground today – "if they want to train at a Division Three training ground let them get on with it. They can train in my back garden, it would make no difference," Commons said, ahead of his own team fine tuning their preparations.

And that's how you do that.

Juve did end up training at Murray Park and Rangers even changed their own training plans to accomodate their guests. I guess whoever had Commons' back garden reserved wasn't as flexible.
