Fans of Celtic have taken to Twitter to heap praise on the performance of Hoops midfielder, Ismaila Soro, for his performance in the club’s Europa League victory against Lille.
However, with nothing left to play for in the Europa League, as Celtic had already been eliminated from the competition, Lennon gave the £900k-rated midfielder the nod against the Ligue 1 side, and the defensive midfielder grabbed his chance to impress with both hands.
Being awarded a 7/10 match rating by The Herald, Soro was said to have ‘caught the eye at the base of midfield’, as well as protecting Celtic’s backline ‘admirably’ in their 3-2 win against the French side.
Do you think Ismaila Soro should keep his place in the starting XI?
And, many Celtic fans appear to be equally as impressed with the 22-year-old’s performance in the fixture, with many taking to Twitter to call for the player to keep his place in Lennon’s starting XI going forward.
So, what exactly did these Celtic fans have to say about Ismaila Soro’s performance against Lille?
Great performance from Celtic. Turnbull and Soro excellent. Hopefully can go on a run now. ? #CELLOSC

The bhoy Soro looks like the missing link in that team. What a powerful player.

Hate to say it, but actually deserve it against a side WHO NEED TO WIN and are 2nd behind PSG!! All we need is one positive game, one good performance…SO FAR!! 10/10…Soro is winning the midfield, the attack is better. #HH

All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Celtic fans were delighted with the performance of Soro, with many stating their belief that the midfielder is now undroppable for Lennon going forwards.
