Kolo Toure has just completed a move to Celtic

Kolo Toure has just completed a move to Celtic to end his time with Liverpool once and for all.

The defender had been linked with a move almost every summer since he came from Manchester City on a free transfer. Even though he became an influential part of Jurgen Klopp’s revival at Anfield towards the end of last season, concerns about his age were a major factor in the club deciding to let him go in the summer. Toure was one of the players released by Liverpool and it made him an attractive proposition for the clubs across the world.

Even though he was approaching 35,Toure still had the ability to play on for a couple of years. His immense talent and experience are second to none. Newly appointed Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has decided to take advantage of his presence in the Bosman market by convincing him to move to Celtic Park. The Scotland club will face renewed rivalry in the Scottish Premier league since the return of Rangers to the top division has been completed. This coupled with the need to do well in European competitions puts a lot of pressure on Rodgers. After the move that reunited him with his former boss,Toure said that he is happy to be playing for Rodgers once again.

“He is a top manager. For me, he is one of the best.He did a great job at Swansea then he came to Liverpool, did a great job again, and I am sure he will do a great job here.I’m fit. But of course I have just joined the team and I need time to be ready.I can’t tell you when but I am ready right now in my mind and I will give everything I have got every day to be able to help my team-mates,” said Toure.
