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.

Kei Kamara scored the first in the 16th minute for Columbus but the Ex-Chelsea centre forward assisted Ignacio Piatti as he equalized for Impact ten minutes later. Before the first half ended, Kei Kamara scored in the extra minutes sending the hosts into wild jubilation.

The second half started with the 2-1 score line but changed very quickly in the 48th minute when Federico Higuain (Napoli’s Higuain elder brother) scored his first of the game. The goal increased the lead for the hosts and nobody would have expected what happened next as all was well for a deserved victory.

In the 53rd minute, Crew SC won a penalty and Federico Higuain took the kick and converted but there were arguments as Federico Higuain didn’t allow Kei Kamara score his first career hat-trick. Same Kamara had been confirmed to be traded by MLSSoccer before Wednesday’s MLS trade deadline.
