As kick off approaches we will all be pondering who will be the first name on Ange’s teamsheet.
Over the past few weeks we have seen the Celtic boss tinker less and less with his side and look to field a more settled starting eleven based on form, of course.
But now, there has been a small grenade thrown into the mix in Liel Abada.
The little Israeli has been in good form this season considering most of his performances are coming from the bench and former Rangers striker Kenny Miller cannot believe that he is not starting more games.
Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Miller said, “What Celtic seem to have at the moment because there’s guys, for me, there’s guys that are sitting on that bench and maybe even in the stands that probably have good cases to be playing and starting these games.

“But there seems to be an understanding and a good culture that you know what, it’s no about me playing. It is about the team winning games.
“It’s about the team winning trophies, winning leagues and everybody seems to be focusing on that.
“And again, one that springs to mind is Abada. I cannae believe he doesn’t play! He’s had a wonderful season.
“And for a young, young player as well, he’s had a big impact on that Celtic team.
“But see when he comes on, he’s hungry as ever that he’s gonna impress and he’ll score or assist and he’s super positive when he’s playing.
“And his body language is always really good. You know, he will be sitting on the bench next week, probably as well.
“But the same thing happens again the next game week so it’s real good signs for Celtic in that respect.”
Abada is certainly one of my favourite players in this side at the moment. I like his directness and the fact that he always turns up for games against the Ibrox club and terrorises Borna Barasic.
The only problem he has is that he is up against an in form Maeda and fans favourite in Jota.
Who do you drop to accommodate him?
That is the $69k question for Ange Postecoglou.
