    Exactly what I was thinking if that happens it means he has really turned it on for us and become a big player. Hope it all works out for him as long as he is still under contract to us so that we make a good sum when he is sold.

    It’s disrespectful irrespective of what he thinks in his spare time.

    Couldn't care less if his ambition is to go down to the Prem, it's the same for players the world over but just keep it to yourself, especially when ur just in the door 2mins.

    Genuinely don't get how so many get bent out of shape because players who had no connection to the club before they joined bite on journalists questions. Of course these players wanna play in the prem thats the nature of football today. Bottom line is players would rather play for a mid table prem team than play for most c.l teams. We need to embrace it, development and scouting take the money and replace

    This is spot on for me, you hear so many talking about Ajax or Salzburg models that’s what these teams realise that the guys they are signing are likely to be there 2 to 3 years max in the first team and move on for big money.

    It’s sad that this is what football has become but it is one of the biggest selling points we have for talented players. Come here improve, learn to play in a team that has to win and put yourselves in the EPL shop window.

    If they come in and give their all, improve our team and essentially deliver on their end of the deal I have no problem with them moving on when the time comes.

    Thought he did better with his defensive duties today.

    Worked his * off defensively today which I am delighted to see. Ralston didn’t get left 2 on 1 once.

    Defo a player there but he's not close to being ready to be the guy all season

    Really poor crossing, must have over hit 4 in a row in first half.

    He was brought in to share time with Forrest and Dembele. He's playing the amount he has due to circumstance more than anything. Either way the guy has 6 goals and 4 assists which is not bad for a guy with his experience. Also his goal in his debut would be remembered far more fondly if Barkas hadn't conceded the howler.

    Once Forrest and Dembele are fit they will rotate a lot more often. Ange has said many times he needs a full squad to rotate and keep players on their toes.

    Liel Abada had been a real shining light in Celtic’s topsy-turvy season so far since his move from Maccabi Petah Tikva in the summer. Forming a deadly wing-duo partnership with Jota since their arrivals, the Israeli international had etched his name into the hearts of Celtic fans after some very strong performances from the wing.


    And, the winger took to Celtic’s Instagram to give a Q&A about himself so the fans could get to know him better.





    Favourite goal you scored since joining?

    My favourite goal was against Midtjylland because it was my first goal for Celtic.

    Do you sing the song we’ve made for you?

    Yes I love this song, when the fans sing it, it makes me very happy! Thank you for your support.

    Who’s the best player you’ve played with?

    I think the best player I’ve played with is Manor Solomon. He plays for Israel national team, he is a good player and a good talent.

    How has life been in Glasgow?

    I really like the city, everybody is very nice to me, I really enjoy it here even if the weather is cold!

    Who was your footballing hero growing up?

    My favourite player growing up was Cristiano Ronaldo, I really liked watching him and he is the best player ever.

    Wee guy will get us goals but he has a chronic lack of quality at crucial moments. Mikey J looks like Messi next to him. Needs a rest for a few games.

    Just off it at the moment, would drop him, give Mj a half and then Greek guy other half, and bring him on for Jota if coasting
