I was listening to the show tonight in the background and I thought I heard Keevins say something absurd and thought to myself I will have to listen back to that once the podcast has been uploaded.
I have just listened to it and my suspicions as to what was said were confirmed.
Host Gordon Duncan was speaking about Celtic looking like they will be bringing in attacker Sead Haksabanovic, with multiple reports stating that a deal has been agreed with Rubin Kazan for the Montenegro international and the player apparently in London today for a medical.
He then asked Hugh what he thought of the signing, with Hugh replying:
“There are suggestions it could be done within the next 24 hours”
“With that comes the speculation – incomes Haksabanovic, outgoes Abada!”
“If Celtic were to get a terrific amount of money offered for Abada. All speculation, but I do think that Haksabanovic will be a Celtic player by Sunday or Monday.”
What speculation is Hugh talking about here?
Unless I am completely missing something, and I have just searched to see if there has been any talks of Abada getting sold and I found absolutely nothing like that at all, then it seems Hugh has just completely made this up!
The only talk I am seeing is what we already know, that the likes of Mikey Johnston will be sent out on loan and the likes of Forrest will probably be pushed further back down the pecking order.
As far as I can see, Abada hasn’t been linked with a move anywhere!
He had a great debut season last year, scoring 15 goals for Celtic in all competitions and he has already gotten off the mark in this campaign with his peach against Ross County. Ange will certainly not want him going anywhere.
Have a listen for yourself below.

Hugh Keevins is such an honest unbiased character, his reputation impeccable throughout his distinguished career, surely him telling an untruth is unthinkable… said no one ever.
