Liel Abada should stay at Celtic to work with Brendan Rodgers

Liel Abada should stay at Celtic Park to work with Brendan Rodgers. There’s been much speculation surrounding the small Israeli winger and whether or not he will move on in this summer’s transfer window. When signing players, usually we have a window of 2-3 years at the club before the developed individual will move on to a better league to earn more money – netting Celtic a tidy profit in the process.

We have seen it with the likes of Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk, Moussa Dembele, Kristoffer Ajer and Odsonne Edouard in the past. They polish their rough edges and cut their teeth at a big club where there is constant pressure and collect silverware and winners medals along the way. It’s where we are in the food chain; I think we’ve all come to accept that.

Despite this undeniable fact of life in modern football, Liel Abada still has bags of potential still to fill at Parkhead before he could and should move on to the English Premier League or elsewhere in a top European league. The tricky operator has been sensational for us so far since his move from Maccabi Petah Tikva in his homeland and at 21 still, he can develop even more for sure.

Lethal in front of goal at times, he can still improve his final ball and his composure in front of goal at times also. With Brendan Rodgers returning to the club and him being well-known for improving young players, Liel should sign a new deal, work with Rodgers for another year and really hone and polish his skills to take him to the next level. It would guarantee him a better standard of club when he does depart the premises.

If he isn’t considering it, I think the young man is making one huge mistake which he could pay the price for in time.

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.
