Celtic winger Liel Abada has signed a new long-term deal at Parkhead despite “significant interest” from other clubs.
The treble-winning scored ten league goals last season as he helped Ange Postecoglou’s side towards the title.
And Brendan Rodgers will be hoping he can make a similar impact this season and he scored against Aberdeen in the 3-1 win at Pittodrie.
He has now put pen to paper on a new four-year-deal that will keep contracted at the club until 2027.
Celtic confirmed the news on Friday and Abada said: “I’m really happy to sign the new contract.
“Celtic is a big club with big fans and I love the club.
“Now we have a target for this season and we’re looking forward. The most important thing for me is to improve every day and in every game. I want to get better for the team to achieve our targets.
“Every time I score for this club is really amazing. To score in Celtic Park is always special and the atmosphere is amazing.
“Hopefully I can show more this season for everyone and I will try and get better for the team.
“Every time you play at a club like Celtic you have a lot of great players and a lot of competition.”
Rodgers told Celtic’s website he was delighted with the news, which follows extended deals for Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi earlier this summer.
“We know there was significant interest in Liel from other clubs so we’re delighted that he has committed his future to Celtic,” Rodgers said.
“Already he has made a great contribution to Celtic, delivering some great performances and making a real impact. His energy and ability are real assets to us and his delivery in terms of goals and assists from wide areas has been excellent.
“He is a fantastic young player and now we hope he can build on what he has achieved so far and develop even further.”
