Liel Abada's first Celtic press conference in full as winger makes Rangers title pledge

Celtic new boy Liel Abada insists he will do everything to win the title back from Rangers.

The Israeli ace has checked into Parkhead after sealing a £3.5million move from Maccabi Petah Tikva as part of the massive recruitment drive in Glasgow's east end.

The 19-year-old is part of a massive rebuild at Celtic Park under Ange Postecoglou as they look to wrestle the title back from Ibrox next season.

However, the Israeli wasn't shy in revealing his ambition to lift the Premiership title at the end of his first campaign.

Speaking at his first press conference, he said: "I will be very, very happy, and it's one of my goals here, to take the title with Celtic.

"I want to arrive at all the targets of the club and really I will do everything to win the title again."

Abada reckons he will settle quickly thanks to fellow countrymen Nir Bitton welcoming him to the club.

He added: "Of course, I had a conversation with Nir after I singed the contract.

"He explained to me about the place, and that it's an amazing place, and I really hope we will have a lot of success together.

"I believe that it's always a help when you have somebody who can help you with integration and I think he will help to bring me what I need to integrate with the club."
