Kayal began his career at Israeli side Maccabi Haifa, joining in 2002 as a youth-team player. During the 2004/05 season, the striker-turned-midfielder played for Maccabi’s under-19s despite only being 16.
Beram would go on to make his first-team debut the following season, aged 17, as the club clinched a third consecutive league title. After a handful of appearances in the 2006/07 campaign, he would go on to become a regular during 2007/08, helping the club lift the Toto Cup.
The next season Kayal clinched the second league title of his career, this time playing a much more integral role than when Maccabi last won the championship in 2006.
He played four times for Haifa in the Champions League group stages in 2009, but after a successful eight years in Israel, he opted to join Celtic in July 2010.
Kayal clinched his first Scottish League title in 2011/12, however he missed the second half of the season, returning only for the final day game at Hearts, due to ankle ligament damage sustained in a challenge by Rangers midfielder Lee McCulloch in an Old Firm game.
The Israeli international came off the bench during Celtic’s famous 2-1 Champions League victory over Barcelona at Celtic Park in 2012, in a European campaign that saw the Hoops qualify for the knock-out stages of the competition for only the third time ever. The following season he hit his first ever Champions League goal during a 2-1 win over Ajax.
The Bhoys secured the league title in both 2012/13 and in 2013/14 to make it three in a row, taking Kayal’s tally up to five league title wins in his career.
The 26-year-old has represented his country over 20 times, scoring once during a Euro 2012 qualifier against Latvia in March 2011.
