Hopefully there's a loan move for him soon.

Bang on the worry is that he’s impressing so much Celtic won’t want to send him out and he’s stuck again with Lennon giving him f**k all game time. Could get 40 matches in any League 1 team or bottom half Championship teams on loan.

Lennon has an agent friend with links to Israeli football. That's why you often see him bringing in players from Israel and other obscure leagues. He did the same thing at Hibs and at Celtic the first time he was there.

It's no coincidence that Lennon is praising Soro and not Connell even though Connell looked much better on Monday. Soro is Lennon's man so if Brown isn't able to play as many games this year or McGregor gets injured you can be sure that it will be Soro that gets any first team opportunity going. He needs to justify the few million he spent on him. I don't think Lennon had any direct involvement in the Connell signing.

And, predictably enough, Soro gets the bench spot ahead of Connell. Soro will be given every chance to prove Lennon hasn't given a four year contract to a £2m dud before Connell gets a sniff.

If Connell really wanted to play for Celtic he should have moved to some no mark team in Israel and made friends with an agent called Dudu Dahan. That's how you get in a team managed by Neil Lennon.

Unfortunately for Connell, Celtic are stacked with quality in centre midfield.

Ntcham and Rogic can only make the bench.

Celtic have far too much talent in midfield. Rogic is on the bench, never mind anyone else. Soro is a Very different player compared to Connell as well. 
Some people are worth melting for.

He should really look to go on loan ideally to a top 8/10 League 1 team. Yes I do think he’s way better than a League 1 player but that’s the point he will play 30-40 matches for pretty much any side in the League  and if at 19 years of age if he stands out he straight away puts himself in the shop window for a transfer to a PL team or a top 8 Championship side at least if Celtic won’t give him a chance.

Connell was never even going to be considered today and that has little to do with Soro's transfer fee. They are hardly like for like, for a start, with Soro seen as more of a Brown replacement while Connell more similar to McGregor.
Even if they were similar types, Soro has played a few seasons in a decent league winning a national cup. I think Connell will get a chance this season at some point, but I doubt he is in as much of a rush as you are.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Should get a loan. Maybe another team in Scotland.

Thing is though, you can select nine subs. And you're at home to Hamilton. Who are the equivalent of a non league English team if we're being honest.

Do you really need to pack the bench with almost first teamers? Or could you maybe pick your six best subs and then have three young lads on the bench as well? Because there's always a good chance that the game will be won after an hour like it was today. And that's when there's a chance to blood a few younger players. But he didn't properly run the bench until 85 minutes in, and even then it was nearly all senior players other than he gave Dembele five minutes. Which is a complete waste of time.

In a must win game you pick your strongest team. Hamilton's style caused Celtic problems last year at Celtic Park, Scott Brown scoring in injury time for a 2-1 win. There's also the small matter of Celtic, and every other team, having a short pre-season and the first 15-16 needing game time.

Put simply; Celtic, like every other club, are going to do what is best for themselves and not to keep some lad on an Irish football forum happy!
