Celtic picked up a 1-1 draw against FC Midtjylland in the first leg of the Champions League qualifiers last night and summer signing Liel Abada made quite an impression on his debut.

The 19-year-old Israeli winger was signed earlier this month and Ange Postecoglou decided to give him his first start in the vital qualifier.

Abada scored the opening goal of the game for Celtic and he looked lively in the final third. The winger took the Midtjylland defenders on and harassed them with his pace and flair.

The youngster had to be taken off after Nir Bitton’s red card but he managed to make a lasting impression on the fans.

Abada has shown that he has the potential to be a key player for the Hoops next season. The Scottish outfit paid around €4 million for the player this summer and he could prove to be a bargain if he continues to perform at this level.

Celtic fans seem delighted with the performance of the young winger last night and some of them have taken to Twitter to share their reactions after the game.

The player will be hoping to build on his bright start to life at Parkhead now. Celtic will need to produce a positive result in the second leg against the Danish outfit and Abada could make an important contribution.
