Kristian Arran "Kris" Commons (born 30 August 1983) is a footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Scottish Premiership club Celtic.

Commons started his career at Stoke City and made his debut in 2000. After four years with the club he rejected a new contract and signed for Nottingham Forest on a free transfer. He made over 150 appearances for Forest in four years there, and helped them win promotion to the Championship in his final season. He then moved to Derby, again on a free transfer. Injury problems curtailed his goalscoring in his first two years there, but in his final season there he had scored 13 goals by the time of the mid-season transfer window.

In January 2011, Commons moved to Celtic for £300,000. Since then he has won five Scottish League Championships, two Scottish Cups and one Scottish League Cup. He was the top goalscorer in Scotland in season 2013–14 with 32 goals, and that same season won both the PFA Scotland and Scottish Football Writers' Association Player of the Year awards. Commons fell out of favour at Celtic during 2016 and was briefly loaned to Hibernian.

Commons was born in England but qualified to play for Scotland as his grandmother was born in Dundee. He made his Scotland debut in 2008, and went on to win twelve caps.
