Celtic winger Liel Abada has outlined his pride on Instagram after representing Israel once again this month.

Abada has started to make a impact with his country ever since signing for Celtic in the summer. Despite having yet to break into Willi Ruttensteiner’s starting XI, he’s now managed 2 cameo outings over the last 2 international camps.

And as he outlined his pride on Instagram, the likes of Celtic teammate Adam Montgomery and talented Israel colleague Eli Dasa responded to his post:

The post caught the attention of Montgomery, the Israel Football Association, and Dasa – Dasa’s response translating to “fighter jet” in English.

Despite his Celtic performances of course, Abada has an extremely tough task ahead of him breaking into the Israel team. With the likes of Munas Dabbur and Manor Solomon occupying the wide positions, chances have been sparse.

But at only 20 years of age, just the fact he’s in the picture is a big boost and acknowledgement of his quality from Ruttensteiner.

Liel Abada returning to Celtic with another confidence boost

You can see how much it means to Abada to play for his country. Even if he isn’t a part of the strongest XI as of yet, he’s still clearly a big part of Ruttensteiner’s long-term plans.

Abada has made a habit of talking up his pride after international appearance he’s made so far. It’s no surprise then that his latest outing also means the world to him.

He’s in the right place to boost his international aspirations further too. He’s already made himself the number one right-winger at Parkhead. Considering what playing for Celtic has done for Nir Bitton’s Israel career, there’s no reason it can’t do the same for Abada’s.

It’ll be interesting to see if he can break up the exciting and deadly trio Israel already have up front. But he’s clearly put himself in there as first reserve as things stand.

From a Celtic perspective of course, it’s great to have Abada back amongst things at Parkhead without having picked up a knock. Given his minimal game-time over the last two weeks, he should be fresh and ready to shine for Celtic once again.

Fingers crossed he makes a telling impact from Saturday onwards.
