Ismaila Soro has been the subject of the Celtic twitter content today, and fans are loving it.

The Hoops had a heck of a job turning around the animosity towards them. Jetting off to Dubai just days after losing a derby during a gloabl pandemic wasn’t the smartest decision.

It’s led to a backlash from both supporters and the Scottish Government. Some merited, some a touch over the top. You can understand all of the criticism that has gone their way.

Celtic in the past couple of days have tried to appease their fans with Dubai content. It hasn’t gone down well. Nothing has worked as they looked to get supporters back onside after Saturday’s Ibrox defeat.

Today, however, they pulled out the big guns. The Hoops have done an interview with Ismaila Soro, a player they know fans absolutely adore.

Ismaila Soro on Celtic Twitter is a recipe for success

They’ve used the Ivorian to get some of the heat off of their backs. Make no mistake, that’s exactly what’s happened. They knew they couldn’t go another day or two posting more training images and getting away with them.

And credit to them because it’s had the desired effect. Celtic fans in general are still furious with the club’s decision to go abroad. However, wheeling out Soro has proven to be a masterstroke. For the time being at least.

Fans can’t see past the former Bnei Yehuda midfielder. His influence on turning Celtic’s performance levels around can’t be denied. He’s perhaps even been more important than David Turnbull in that sense given he’s provided the backline with an incredible wall of protection.

Granted, as soon as the Soro stuff dies down Celtic will be back in the back books again. This is only a temporary fix, but it’s one that has eased some of the fan pressure today.
