Celtic have confirmed that Liel Abada has signed a new four-year deal which will see him remain at the club until the summer of 2027.

The 21-year-old Israeli internationalist moved to the Scottish champions back in July 2021 from Maccabi Petah Tikva.

He made his competitive debut in a UEFA Champions League qualifier against Danish side, FC Midtjylland, and he marked the occasion with a goal.

Since then he’s gone on to make 105 appearances for Celtic, scoring 29 goals, with the most recent coming in the 3-1 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie last month.

He’s also won five trophies with the club, including last season’s historic treble, while he was also voted PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year in his first season.

Speaking to Celtic TV, Liel Abada said: “I’m really happy to sign the new contract.

"Celtic is a big club with big fans and I love the club.

"Now we have a target for this season and we’re looking forward. The most important thing for me is to improve every day and in every game. I want to get better for the team to achieve our targets.

“Every time I score for this club is really amazing. To score in Celtic Park is always special and the atmosphere is amazing.

"Hopefully I can show more this season for everyone and I will try and get better for the team.

“Every time you play at a club like Celtic you have a lot of great players and a lot of competition.

"For me, the most important thing is to work hard every day and gain experience from the staff and improve for the team."

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers added: “I am delighted that Liel has extended his contract with the club.  

“We know there was significant interest in Liel from other clubs so we’re delighted that he has committed his future to Celtic.

“Already he has made a great contribution to Celtic, delivering some great performances and making a real impact. His energy and ability are real assets to us and his delivery in terms of goals and assists from wide areas has been excellent.

“He is a fantastic young player and now we hope he can build on what he has achieved so far and develop even further.”
