Club career[edit]

Gershon began his career with Hapoel Rishon Lezion and joined on 6 July 2009 on trial to Standard Liège of the Jupiler League.[1] After finishing the trial Liege loaned Gershon for one season with an option to buy him at the end which they eventually did at the summer of 2010 and immediately loaned him to K.V. Kortrijk for one season.


On 9 January 2013, Celtic's Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell announced that Gershon had signed a loan deal until the end of the season.[2] On 9 February 2013, Gershon made his Celtic début away to Inverness CT in the Scottish Premier League, managing to score and put Celtic into a 1-2 lead, the match ended 1-3.[3]

KAA Gent[edit]

2014, the Belgian team KAA Gent transferred Rami to Belgium. He was quite quickly one of the players in the basic team, and he was a strongholder[clarification needed] in the 2015-Championship-team and a year later in the Champions League-campaign.

International career[edit]

Gershon has won 10 caps for the Israel U21 and 21 caps for Israel.[4] On 12 October 2010 Gershon made his debut for Israel in the 1-2 loss to Greece, in a Euro 2012 Qualifier. On 11 October 2011, Gershon scored his first goal for the national team in Israel's 2-0 away win over Malta, also in the Euro 2012 qualifiers.[5] On 22 March 2013, Gershon scored against Portugal in Ramat Gan Stadium in the 3-3 draw.[6]
