This has been a strange week as a Celtic blogger.

Having to highlight the selective nature on how the media report on Celtic during an international week has been a right eye opener.

Already we have had Kyogo being punted to Southampton, Ange Postecoglou being warned his job is under threat. Twice!

And then we have Liel Abada apparently saying he want’s a move to Liverpool.

Which of course he did say during an interview, but as always , the headlines did not match the context of the discussion when reported back in Scotland.

Speaking to Israeli TV station Sport 5, Abada was speaking about the moment when he got the contract from Celtic and the incredible atmosphere the Celtic fans conjure up at Parkhead, ‘I told my friends at Maccabi that i wasn’t feeling well, that i had indigestion, because Celtic wanted us not to talk about the deal.

“I remember coming to Aviv Luzon’s restaurant where his uncle showed me the contract. I grabbed my head. I knew my dream was coming true,”

“But whoever was at Celtic Park doesn’t understand what atmosphere is.

“You don’t understand what chill this is giving me.

“So is my song. Even when they shout ‘You Will Never Walk Alone’, it is hard for me to even put into words.” 

Abada also went on to say that his ‘biggest dream’ is Liverpool but it was further down his career, “My dream was to stay playing in England, in one of the teams in the Premier League.

“The biggest dream is Liverpool, but i have to keep working hard here, proving myself, not too far. step by step.”

The five minute video was predominately based around his life at Celtic, but as soon as Liverpool was mentioned, the quote of his dream to play for the Hoops, was not even mentioned, or the moment when he saw the contract from Celtic.

But that doesn’t gain clicks though better than a Celtic transfer story though does it?
