Although the announcement from @CelticFC included an image with the hashtag #welcomesoro, the “proposed transfer” phrasing and absence of any wording to say that the transfer was fully completed prompted a backlash from these Hoops fans on Twitter, with one supporter describing the club’s update as “odd”:
