Neither of them has played the full 90 minutes of Celtic’s last two matches but UEFA are certainly taking note of Liel Abada and Reo Hatate.
Celtic storming to the top of the SPFL Premiership has teed things up perfectly for the Social Media team of the UEFA Conference League with Bodo Glint first footing Celtic Park next week.
Brought together by Ange Postecoglou it seems that there is already a special relationship brewing between the Israeli winger and the Japanese midfielder as Celtic take their game up a gear or two from the form that they signed out of 2021.

Alongside Callum McGregor, Hatate and Abada are probably the first attacking players on the team sheet for tonight’s match at Aberdeen with the home side well warned about the first half onslaught that they can expect.
With six creative players backed up by two full-backs prepared to go into the centre trying to stop Celtic is tougher than identifying the sources of danger.
Thursday’s match will be Bodo Glint’s first of 2022, after losing a number of key players during the transfer window.
