Brendan Rodgers admits £10 million Celtic player could leave

There have been a lot of changes at Celtic since Brendan Rodgers was brought back as the club's manager to replace Ange Postecoglou, who left for Tottenham Hotspur. The style of football has certainly undergone quite a bit of change. The fast-paced, all-action Angeball has been replaced by a slower build-up play.

That has had a negative impact on a lot of players, many of whom were signed during Postecoglou's time at Celtic Park. But one player who was expected to benefit from Rodgers' arrival is Liel Abada.

At the start of the season, it had looked like the case as well. Abada was finally a regular starter for Celtic after Jota had departed for Al-Ittihad. It was not long before he ended up picking up an injury though, which kept him out of action for several months.

At the same time, the current global situation did not help Abada either. He has returned to fitness but looks like a shadow of his former self. And there are serious question marks over his future at Parkhead.

It looks like Abada leaving is a genuine possibility. As reported by BBC, when asked if a loan was an option, Rodgers said:

"It's a possibility, but we'll see. We will work together on it."

As things stand, it looks almost certain that Abada will leave the club. It would make sense for both parties involved. It is possible that he might not be comfortable playing for Celtic at the moment and it is not hard to understand why that might be the case.

Not too long ago, Abada was rated at a transfer fee north of £10 million. But it is hard to imagine that the Hoops would be able to bring in anything close to that after the season he has had so far. So, it would make sense to send him out on loan and get his value up.
