The Lowdown: Celtic’s signings under Postecoglou
The likes of Kyogo Furuhashi, Jota, Cameron Carter-Vickers have all come to the club and become key players for the Hoops under Postecoglou.
It now appears that another one of the 57-year-old’s signings has been backed by a former Celtic player to pledge his future to the club and put pen to paper on a new deal at Parkhead.
The Latest: Celtic backed for new Abada deal
The 62-year-old said: “Abada is young, he has got a lot of time. He is progressing and getting better everyday. He looked good against Real Madrid last week. He was fearless, getting the ball and wanting to run at people.
“I think he is a good one to keep hold of. For me, he will definitely sign a new contract.”
The Verdict: A long-term figure for Celtic…hopefully
With 74 Celtic appearances under his belt across all competitions, the 21-year-old has scored 24 goals and delivered 13 assists.
Has Liel Abada been a good signing for Celtic?
The Israeli attacker has also delivered the fourth-highest number of crosses (30) of anyone at Celtic in the current Premiership campaign, further showcasing his attacking talents.
Even though his current contract isn’t set to expire until 2026, the club should do all that they can to keep Abada at Celtic for as long as they can, as he certainly has the ability to be a long-term marquee figure for the Bhoys.
