Liel Abada talks up his dream scenario at Celtic
Celtic winger Liel Abada has described bringing the Scottish Premiership trophy back to Parkhead as a ‘dream’, as the Bhoys look to take a step closer this weekend.
But, the 20-year old knows they still face a challenge at hand before celebrating any further trophy success this season.
Having joined last July, Abada has enjoyed some early success in Ange Postecoglou’s new-look side, winning the Premier Sports cup earlier in the season.
The Israeli internationalist has also enjoyed some personal success of his own, enjoying a brilliant first season for Celtic, scoring 15 goals and providing 11 assists.
This may have led to a nomination for the young player of the year award in Scotland, but Abada’s focus is strictly on delivering the title for the Celtic fans rather than his own personal accolades.
The young winger also stated that it would be a ‘dream season’, if Postecoglou and his squad were to win the league back this season.
However, the players know there is still a job to be done, starting with this weekend’s Glasgow derby fixture against Rangers.
“It’s been a really good season for us, but we have a goal, and we need to complete it” (Daily Record)
“We want to play at a high level, and we try to win everything. If we take the championship, it will be a dream season for us.”
When asked about the Celtic support, he continued, “It’s great fun to see all the love and appreciation you get from the supporters when I am in the city.
“Everyone is so good when you talk to them in the street. I just want to repay them.”
Key message continues to be displayed by Celtic dressing room.
Winning the title would clearly mean a lot to this group of players.
Some will be determined to put last season’s disappointment behind them, whilst others are hungry to lift their first league trophy as a Celtic player.
But, the same fundamental message continues to be displayed, no matter which player speaks in the media.
No one is going to be getting ahead of themselves.
Ange Postecoglou’s side is almost within touching distance of delivering the title, and this weekend’s game provides the opportunity to take another step closer to that end goal.
Despite that, you can guarantee each player will be going into Sunday’s game with the same mindset as every other fixture this campaign.
