Liel Abada ‘finalising’ Celtic exit with big-money transfer

Football Scotland reports the Hoops winger is finalising his departure from the club.

They state that the player, 22, is in talks with FC Charlotte over a switch to the MLS.

Should a move go through, the winger will team up with ex-Rangers ace Scott Arfield in the United States.

It’s said the attacker has been in discussions with the MLS side since the end of last week, with a fee of around £10m floated.

It was recently revealed by Brendan Rodgers that the Israeli could well have played his last game for Celtic. That certainly seems to be the case now.

The boss explained that the wide man was ‘not in the right frame of mind’ to play for the club following the ongoing conflict in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine. It comes amid a section of the Celtic support’s backing of Palestine.

This report suggests a deal between Celtic and Charlotte could go through this week, with a medical set to be done soon.

Abada extended his contract at Celtic Park last September. He agreed to sign on until the summer of 2027. 

But that looks to be significantly cut short after his 112 appearances for the club, having scored 29 goals in that period.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers took aim at Don Robertson and John Beaton after Celtic’s loss at Hearts today.

The Irishman felt aggrieved over his side being reduced to 10 men early in the game at Tynecastle, as well as a penalty being awarded against his team.

The game, which ended 2-0 to the hosts, was action-packed from start to finish, with penalties, a red card, and other controversial moments dominating the proceedings.
