“I believe he will go, ” Hartson on Abada’s Celtic Exit

John Hartson reckons that we’ve seen the last of Liel Abada in a Celtic shirt as the former Celtic striker. Speaking on Go Radio, gave his assessment of the difficult situation for all parties that he believes can only be resolved by a part of the ways.

Abada has come under intense pressure from his home country due to the Celtic support’s support for the Palestine cause.  This long pre-dates Abada’s arrival in Glasgow to sign for the Scottish Champions. However the current escalation of violence has resulted in the Israeli winger receiving severe pressure from his back home not to play for Celtic.

The Celtic support have been entirely supportive of the player and since his return from an injury. This was picked up last September while away on International duty with Israel. And Abada he has received several standing ovations from the Celtic support since returning to full fitness.

Happier times at Celtic for Liel Abada

But Abada’s presence at the club seems to conflict with the Green Brigade’s continuous flying of a Palestine flag at matches. There is little doubt that the ‘Support the Resistance’ banner from last October created world-wide attention for the Green Brigade’s stance.  But it has also been the catalyst for a Liel Abada exit from Celtic.

“I believe he will go. I think that’s the talk. And he wants to do is what is best for him and his family,” Hartson said. “He’s not a regular at this moment in time. I don’t want to go into what’s happening around his country and everything else, but I think there’s been sort of in-depth talks about him leaving the club.

“Where he goes next, I have no idea. But you look at some press conferences, and listening to Brendan talking as well, it very much looks as if he and his agents will be will be pretty much looking for another club. That’s how I see it.”
