Celtic winger Liel Abada set for a month on the sidelines with muscle injury

Celtic winger Liel Abada looks set to spend a month on the sidelines with a muscle injury after being forced to withdraw from international duty. The Israeli attacker had started the win over Rangers at Ibrox before departing for his National Team’s camp for games against Romania and Belarus.

However, after picking up an injury, Abada has returned to Scotland. According to Sun Sport, the 21-year-old will miss a month including Celtic’s opener in the UEFA Champions League against Feyenoord.

Israeli outlet Sport5 says: “The 21-year-old seems to be angry mainly with himself, because he chose to continue kicking at the end of the training even though it was a permission and not an obligation.”

Brendan Rodgers has had a number of injuries to contend with since arriving back at the club for his second spell. Defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, Maik Nawrocki and Stephen Welsh are out whilst Reo Hatate is expected to return after the international break.

Marco Tilio is due to return to training shortly, another attacking option in the wide areas that can attempt to mitigate the loss of Abada.
