Celtic ended their Europa League campaign with a much-needed victory over Ligue 1 side Lille on Thursday evening.
The Hoops ran out 3-2 winners at Parkhead, recording their first win since the beginning of November, and several fans were impressed with the display of midfielder Ismaila Soro.
The 22-year-old had featured in just 37 minutes of action during the current campaign prior to Thursday evening, with David Turnbull scoring the winner late on.
Soro received a solid 7.52/10 WhoScored match rating – only match-winner Turnbull ended with a better score for the Hoops.
The Ivorian made 10 tackles, with Lille making just five more than Soro’s tally as a whole. (WhoScored)
This is what these Hoops fans had to say about Soro’s performance, with one describing the midfielder as ‘superb’.
