He wasn’t on the scoresheet but throughout the pictures of goals at Hamilton his joy stood out- often head and shoulders above his team-mates. Literally.

spent last in sunny Israel but in the midst of Storm Bella on the plastic pitch at he couldn’t have looked happier.

There wasn’t too much need for his trade-mark role of protecting the central defenders but he refused to be drawn forward. With the deep role secured David Turnbull, and had licence to join in the attacks with and doing likewise in reduced rations.

It worked a treat. Whether Hamilton had their first or second choice XI out on the park their role was the same- to spoil and close down space, there was no attacking intent throughout the 90 plus minutes.

The conditions at Hamilton were completely miserable but in just his fourth Celtic starting appearance it seems that Soro has brought new life and energy to an area of the park that is essential if this season is to be turned around.
