Liel Abada Injury latest – If it wasn’t for bad luck, Celtic would have no luck

The Celtic news that is doing the rounds today is as unwelcome as it is devastating. For it’s being widely reported that Israeli winger, Liel Abada, will now be out for several months after receiving a knock on international duty with his country this past week.

It’s the last thing any of us wanted to hear today and is a perfect example of why we all dread the stopping of domestic action for those fixtures involving our national sides’. This one is just the latest in a litany of injured players who are all seen as essential parts to our team. With the defensive injuries which included Cameron Carter-Vickers, this one is tough to take.

Sometimes it really does just feel like if it wasn’t for bad luck, Celtic would have no luck at all. The defensive crisis led to us having to scramble to secure another centre-back which wasn’t seen as a priority to begin with, as other crucial additions were needed at left-back and also goalkeeper to help aid our assault both at home and abroad.

After Abada just signed a contract extension too, if he is out as long as is being mooted, it’s just another headache we could be doing without. The player will no doubt be absolutely gutted after starting brightly under Brendan Rodgers and seeing the potential for a fruitful relationship that can be developed with the Irishman. That has been shelved for the time being now as the attacker starts the long road to recovery.

Abada will be a miss, for sure.

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
