The 19-year-old – who Celtic describe as highly rated in their announcement – joins the Bhoys on a five-year contract.

Abada will cost Celtic £3.4m, which is set to be paid in three instalments according to The Scotsman.

Celtic claim that the teenager attracted interest from some major European clubs last season, after earning a call-up to Israel’s senior squad.

For such a young player, Abada has enjoyed a decent career so far.

He scored 20 goals in 76 appearances for Maccabi Petah Tikva, which is quite a decent strike rate – roughly a goal every four games.

Abada also provided ten assists in those outings.

Additionally, the attacker can operate as a centre-forward, or as a winger, versatility which Postecoglou will surely be a huge fan of.

By all accounts, Abada is a hugely promising prospect, who Celtic have done well to get their hands on.
