New Celtic Signing Ismaila Soro Says His Ambition is to One Day Play for Liverpool

New Celtic signing Ismaila Soro has touched down in Glasgow – and admitted his long-term ambition is to one day play for Liverpool.

The central midfielder has joined the Hoops after passing a medical last week, following an agreement thought to be in the region of £2 million with Israeli side Bnei Yehuda, where the 21-year-old has played since the summer of 2018.

The Ivorian is set to join-up with Neil Lennon’s squad this week, and he could be in line for a debut this weekend when the Premiership champions continue their quest for nine-in-a-row away to Hamilton Accies.

But, it seems Soro has his eyes on one day playing in the English Premier League – and for the reigning English and European champions.

Speaking in an interview with the website ‘ONE’, via the Sun, Soro explained: “After Celtic I would like to play in the Premier League and Liverpool, that’s why the Scottish League will be very good for me.

“I’m really happy to make a career because Celtic is a great team.

“It’s flattering to take my career to the next level and face such a challenge.

“It was so exciting when I was informed that I was officially joining Celtic, I was very happy that the deal was finally closed and I said thank you to the club.

“I was worried that the two clubs were not progressing, so I went to speak with the CEO (Kfir Edri, MR) to talk to the owner (Barak Abramov, MR).

“I felt that I needed to move forward in my career and that the clubs did not agree on the transfer.

“There was a problem and it was resolved.”

Do you think Soro will play a significant role in Celtic’s attempt to retain the league title, as well as winning an unprecedented quadruple domestic treble?
