Celtic have confirmed new Bhoy Ismaila Soro will wear the number 12 shirt after completing his move from Bnei Yehuda earlier this week.
The 21-year-old put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half year deal with Celtic after the two clubs agreed a fee in the region of £2million.

Soro becomes Celtic’s second signing of the window after Patryk Klimala’s £3.5million move from Jagiellonia Bialystok earlier this month, and Neil Lennon has already confirmed his desire to add “one or two” more players before the end of January.
Following his move, Soro has been allocated the number 12 shirt, following in the footsteps of the likes of Cristian Gamboa, Mark Wilson and Stefan Scepovic.
And a number of fans have shared their reactions to Soro’s squad number, with one in particular suggesting it could be a sign that Celtic are on their way to winning 12 league titles in a row.
