Celtic: Fans react with mixture of relief and cynicism as Ismaila Soro transfer is finally made official - Celtic

Celtic announced on their official website celticfc.net on Monday that the club had formally completed the signing of Ivorian midfielder Ismaila Soro from Bnei Yehuda, with the news also shared on their Twitter channel @CelticFC.

The 21-year-old was initially scouted by the Hoops back in November, according to the Daily Record, with the same publication claiming in early January that his agent Dudu Dahan had hinted at a possible move to Glasgow. However, the move seemed in doubt later in the month after Sky Sports reported thatย  Genk had entered the race to sign him.

Last week, Celtic stated on their official website that Soro had passed a medical at the club and was just waiting on the confirmation of international clearance before the deal could be made official. However, the transfer wasn’t fully confirmed until this Monday, with the Ivorian becoming the Hoops’ second signing of the winter transfer window after Patryk Klimala.

With Soro finally confirmed as a Celtic player, these fans of the club on Twitter commented on the length of time it took for the deal to be formalised:
