    Celtic are delighted to announce the signing of Liel Abada on a five-year deal from Maccabi Petah Tikva subject to international clearance. The highly-rated Israeli international midfielder completed his move today (Wednesday) at Celtic Park.

    Abada’s performances for his club last season earned him a call up to the senior Israeli squad and attracted interest from major European clubs.

    The 19-year-old has predominantly played on the right-wing however, he was deployed as a centre forward on occasion in the latter half of last season which resulted in him scoring four goals in seven games for Maccabi Petah Tikva.

    Abada came through the youth ranks at his hometown team Maccabi Petah Tikva and made his first-team debut with the club in January 2019 aged 17. He has gone on to make a total of 76 appearances for the Israeli club, scoring 20 goals along the way.

    The teenage winger earned his first cap for the Israeli national side in June in a 3-1 win against Montenegro. That came off the back of an impressive 2020/21 season for Maccabi Petah Tikva in which he scored 13 goals in 38 appearances.

    Abada is the third new arrival at Celtic under Ange Postecoglou following on from Liam Shaw and Osaze Urhoghide. He is expected to begin training with his Celtic teammates on Friday (July 16th) when they return to Lennoxtown after Wednesday night’s game against Bristol City.

    Happy with this, Forrest was injured for almost the entirety of last season so he needs someone to fill in or even just give him competition.

    Heard he can also play on the left too, so an added bonus.

    Wonder if it's too soon to play him tonight :fear:

    Brilliant.
    Played a fair few games already, even at his age. Would expect to see him go right in to the match day squad at the weekend now.

    Now get Starfelt over the line, get back on for Vuskovic and get a striker in.

    Interesting that they mention him being used as a striker towards the end of the season too. If we (rightly) bin Griffiths and with Edouard's future in the air it'd be great if he could be an option in that position too.

    5 year deal tells you what we must think of him..

    I genuinely think this boy will be a gem. Looks like the type of winger we've been needing that has pace, versatility can finish..

    First of plenty needed..

    Mon son..
