‘Legend of Soro’: Fans react to Ivorian’s excellent Dundee United display

It has been quite a few years now that we have been in the search for Scott Brown’s successor. Many have come and gone in the deep midfield role, seemingly not up to the task of replacing the committed and resolute displays that ‘Broony’ has had to offer in his twelve-year tenure at Celtic Park. Eboue Kouassi, Youssouf Mulumbu (despite his age) and Stefan Johansen have arrived at Paradise in recent years with the task of learning from Broony to become the steel in central midfield. Ultimately, they haven’t passed the test as our bald-headed brute continued to be one of the first names on the team sheet; although, this is changing recently due to one man’s improved form.

Ismaila Soro, signed from Israeli Premier League side Bnei Yehuda just under a year ago, was appearanceless for the first nine months of his spell in Glasgow with a knee injury he’d picked up before his move, and ultimately missed the rest of the season due to its COVID cancellation. Having waited patiently for his chance – coupled with the inevitable slight decline of an aging Brown – Soro has been thrusted into life at Parkhead and alongside summer signing David Turnbull, hasn’t looked back. Scoring his first league goal for the Bhoys’ on Wednesday with a long-range effort, fans were highly praising of Soro, with one supporter calling him and the ‘Wishaw Wizard’ a perfect match in midfield.

After a year of frustration for the Ivorian Interceptor, he must be elated with his dominating performances – and long may it continue.
