Celtic should move against disgraceful lies spread by the Israeli media

The disgraceful lies spread by the Israeli media should be dealt with by the club. It’s libellous and it’s damaging. Time to act, Celtic…

Liel Abada may no longer be a Celtic player, but that still hasn’t stopped the many lies being spread about the reason why he felt the need to leave the club. The Israeli media are the main culprits, and the lies that they have published are both inaccurate and damaging to the good name of the Celtic supporters. It’s bewildering that these lies are still getting media attention despite the player himself thanking the football club and the supporters for his time at the club in his farewell speech.

Some guy by the name of Ben Green produced the biggest lot of nonsense on X not so long ago. He said the Liel Abada transfer was the most shameful football transfer of all time! All based on a false article by an Israeli sports outlet. Green has reposted this fabricated piece on many social media forms.

Green, who is based in Israel is some sort of ‘growth builder’ according to his Linkedln profile. He should add shameful liar to his resume. Ben Green doesn’t exactly have a big X following, but his lies reached all the right people. Yes the backward folk of this country who have no qualms about spreading lies about our football club to fulfil their own warped agenda.

Ironically the same folk are consumed with their own prejudices. Maybe folk such as Ben Green should do some research into our club, our identity, and why we were formed. Not to mention the many challenges a lot of us, our fathers and forefathers  have had to face over the past 100 years or so. I think they would be quite surprised.

Ben is a nobody just seeking attention, but his false accusations have been very damaging to the good name of our supporters, all aided and abetted by the lies of the Israeli media. Our football club needs to stand up to these propagandists and demand an apology and a retraction or threaten legal action. The supporters all know it’s a lie. The club know it’s all lies, even the Israeli media know it’s all a lie.

It’s time we took action and stopped these false smears. Unfortunately I don’t think our club have the backbone to do so.

ON CELTIC SHORTS NOW…Koki Mizuno – Celtic’s Forgotten Japanese Star

About Author

An ordinary everyday Celtic supporters hailing and still residing in Govan in the shadows of the enemy. I’m a season ticket holder. I Witnessed my first Celtic game in 1988 and have attended when I can ever since. Growing up in the 90s I witnessed Celtic at their lowest, and now appreciate the historic success we enjoy today. I enjoy writing about this wonderful football club and hopefully will continue to do so. I’ve always been a keen writer and initially started this a hobby. My ambition is to one day become as good an author as my fellow Celtic Star colleagues.


  1. The fans who destroyed Leil Abada’s Celtic career need to look in the mirror and accept responsibility instead of pointing fingers!
    The fact is they chased away an excellent young Isrealli player through their typical bigoted, un-connected political protests. They got involved in something that has NOTHING to do with being Celtic fans but somehow managed to ruin the Celtic career of this budding genius.
    No-one is denying Isreal are wrong in this war and/or previous wars and treatments of Palestine. But there is no place inside Paradise on matchday!
    Another Israelli ex-Celtic player, Bitton, recently tried to warn these bigots they had no idea what they were doing with these protests and literally BEGGED them to stop and keep their protests away from the stadium. But no, these idiots know better! They have and continue to cost the club hundreds of thousands of pounds in fines, blackening what was a pristine name across Europe in the process.
    Stop pointing fingers at anyone else. Go buy yourselves a nice clean mirror and have a look in there. You’re going to find who’s to blame staring right back at you.
    You ruined this career and the potential of any young future Israelli gracing Celtic park in our colours.
    You have no place in our stadium. You are an embarrassment to our club.

    • What an absolute disgrace you are. Nobody ruined that falles career, only the Israeli journalist. The guy was loved at Celtic, and no one gave him a hard time, only the media in Israel for playing for Celtic. If you have read the piece about Green dragging Celtic’s name through the mud, you would know where the problem is. You are the embarrassment.

    They’re lying about the reason for killing tens of thousands in Gaza, so why should Celtic expect them to be truthful about Abada’s departure. It’s all part of the “we’re a persecuted people under constant attack” narrative!

  3. Brian McAllister on

    Yeh really? . Celtic should launch a libel case against a clown on twitter? Or who else? The Israeli regime? The Israeli people???? How old are you twelve? Time you took a reality pill mate. No backbone? What a pile of idiotic cack that is in this context. There’s no stopping the Zionist murderers killing innocent thousands never mind some joker on social media lying about the reasons a player left us.

  4. None of us can comment on what happens in other area’s of the world.
    Just drop these stories and concentrate on Celtic as a football team.

    • And why is that Davie?

      The apartheid regime currently engaged in genocide is the most horrific government in the world and the atrocities they are carrying out would shame the devil himself, I’d say that is worthy of comment is it not?

      I don’t stand silently as people in my company get robbed or attached, perhaps you do, but that is not the SNA of most Celtic fans I know!

      We should stand up to the lies of the media, not the X feed jobby. Allowing untruths to be stated without challenge is weak and silly.

      Although all of us should take pause and realise the bread and circuses nature of this world compared to what the poor people of Palestine are currently being subjected to

  5. Shun them, totally ignore. From the bhoy himself came the truth, so ends the lies.

  6. Could not care less what some genocidal muppet has to say about us, just ignore him. It is because of the psychopaths in his own country Liel is now playing in the USA, do not blame the lad one bit for wanting to move, nothing to do with Celtic fans.

  7. Israel was created by lies and lives by lies. The Mossad motto is “war through deception”. Everything about them is lies.

    Like any fascist state, lies are their stock and trade, and after >30k dead, mostly women and children, 16 k children among them, lying about a football player is no biggie.
