Ismaila Soro’s comments about wanting a move to Liverpool in the future appear to have divided opinions amongst the Celtic fanbase.
The 21-year-old completed his move to Celtic earlier on Monday, and ahead of his move, the midfielder revealed in an interview with Israeli media outlet ONE that he has ambitions of playing for the current champions of Europe later in his career.

And he hopes playing for Celtic can help him achieve those goals.
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.
Soro’s desire to reach the levels required to play for Liverpool in the future can only be a positive in my opinion.
However opinions were mixed on social media, with some praising his honesty while others suggested he was naive.
