    He's not a bad player and will do a decent job for someone but he's not Celtic class

    What’s happening with him then? A move lined up since he didn’t play or is he injured?

    Ismaila Soro isn’t part of the 35 man Celtic squad in Austria for pre-season training.




    The midfielder started Celtic’s first five competitive matches of last season but as Ange Potecoglou got his squad in shape Soro dropped slowly out of the picture.

    In January Fortuna Sittard were credited with an interest in the 24-year-old, that move fell through with a brief appearance off the bench in the February 2 Glasgow Derby the last time that Soro played for Celtic.




    Yosuke Ideguchi and James McCarthy started in Wednesday’s friendly against Wiener Viktoria, Liam Shaw replaced McCarthy after an hour with no sign of Soro.

    Updating the ins and outs at Celtic, The Sunmentioned:

    Definitely heading away from the champions are keeper Ross Doohan, who is joining Tranmere Rovers, and midfielder Ismaila Soro, who was left out of the squad that flew to Austria.


    With a contract running until May 2024 it is unlikely that Celtic will find a club prepared to match Soro’s wages.

    Last month Utrecht took Vasilis Barkas on a season long loan, getting another club to pay part of Soro’s wages looks like the simplest way of moving the midfielder on.

    I dunno....I always kinda liked the lad.

    Don't hate me as I appreciate I'm making a very wild and insane comparison but he reminded me of a early day Broony...loads of energy buzzing about trying to get involved but his decision making perhaps wasn't so great so he seemed a bit aimless.

    With regular game time, he's of a good age that he could still go on to have fine career. Get him out on loan somewhere that he can get game time and maybe after it...we might just see him get sold elsewhere for £1mill or £2mill.

    I've said the same tbh, more than anything Soro needed game time be it here or out on loan. Broony was a bit of a headless chicken when he first signed, the biggest criticisms of him early on were the same, chasing things when he didn't need to, flying into needless challenges and picking up stupid yellows, he needed time and experience to mature into his role with us.

    I'm not saying Soro would ever feature as consistently or go on the the levels of importance for us as a peak Broony, but I think it's harsh how he's being written off. I'd still rather a Soro type in the squad that has the potential to grow into something more than signing an older player like McCarthy, that feels like a much bigger waste of a wage to me.

    Definitely a player in there, a raw Kante, he's better than CalMac defensively as a CDM although he can't seem to get through a game without a yellow, in my opinion we need to be looking for a Wanyama type, a big bull dozer to sit in front of the defence

    Don't think he's actually had that many yellows to be honest. He can sometimes look a little reckless but don't think his stats are that bad.

    I'm not sure if he has a place in Ange's team but I think he'll go on and have a decent career if and when he's moved on.

    They are two very different players and in different positions but used him as he was first name that came to my head.

    Lewis Ferguson has played roughly 186 games I think it is and has had 50 yellows to his name

    Soro has played 142 and get 24 yellows.

    Just a random comparison... but either way. Soro just isn't gonna make it at Celtic and will need to be moved on in some way.

    Hope it works out for him.

    Aye hes defo a walking Yellow

    & When he has his booking he just gets more aggressive and continues diving in! Not what we need in the middle.
    On top of that Ange clearly doesn't like what he sees in training

    Wonder if Soro being left out of the training squad indicates we'll still be playing Calmac at DM next year. You've got to hope that with Bitton away this has been identified as an area where we now need to strengthen. More than anything, so we can free Calmac to play further up the pitch, as he's wasted where is now.

    Definitely been identified and is our main priority.

    Souza was the main target for the DM role but obviously hasn’t worked out as we’d hoped there.

    We’ll have alternative options lined up.
