#TransferLatest: Celtic Sign Kolo Toure
Scottish Champions, Celtic have confirmed the official signing of Ivorian defender, Kolo Toure on a one-year deal.
The 35-year-old defender reunites with Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, under whom he played while he was at Liverpool. Rodgers has already signed French striker, Moussa Dembele, with Toure the latest addition to his side.
And the Northern Irishman was delighted to team up with the former Arsenal and Manchester City player once again.
“I brought Kolo into Liverpool to add that bit of experience and help to the centre-halves there at the time,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.
“You saw from his impact there and in particular last season, he was a very important player for Jurgen Klopp towards the end of last season, playing in the Europa League final.
“He was outstanding in the big games for me when I was there. He looks after himself, he’s a wonderful professional and he has good experience.
“With a lot of young players in our squad, he can really help them and he can be of great assistance for the likes of Scott Brown, who is a wonderful leader.
“But he needs support and help around him as well. It will be nice for Scotty to have someone behind him who has that real big-game experience. Kolo can do very well for us.”
