Celtic winger Liel Abada has revealed the two people at the club who were vital in helping him settle in at Parkhead.

The Israeli was a revelation in his first season in Glasgow, scoring 15 goals and providing 11 assists as he walked away with the PFA Scotland young player of the year award.

A part of this great return was due in part to how well the 20-year-old was able to adapt to his surroundings.

There was a lot of pressure on the winger, given a lack of squad depth led to him starting most games particularly in the first half of the season.

Speaking to Celtic TV, Abada detailed the people at the club who made him feel at home straight away amid a language barrier in his new country.

He said: "When I first came to Celtic I didn’t speak English, I had a teacher and he would help me whenever I needed help.

“Nir Bitton was a big brother to me and I would speak to him about everything and he helped me a lot last year. I really love him and miss him.

“The manager has been big for me because he gave me the confidence last year and hopefully this season I can improve."

Abada was a substitute in the first match of the season - a 2-0 home win against Aberdeen - and will be hoping to get more game-time this weekend when the Hoops visit Ross County.

He added: “Ross County is a difficult game and to win we need to play our football and do our jobs and hopefully we will get the three points in this game."
