Kolo Toure Eager To Stay At Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers is confident Kolo Toure will complete the move to Celtic FC from Liverpool on Sunday.

The 35-year-old defender has completed his medical at Glasgow. And was in the stands for the ICC clash against Leicester, which the foxes won on penalties.

The former Liverpool manager signed the Ivorian from Manchester City for Liverpool. Rodgers also heaped praise on the centre back for his performances at Anfield, especially on their way to the Europa league final.

“Hopefully by tomorrow that will be done,” he said after the Leicester game.

“He’ll be great for us, I took him to Liverpool for his experience and you saw what he did there. He was so important in the back end of last season, too, in the Europa League.

“He’s looked after himself, he’s in good condition and he’ll be a great addition for us.”

Earlier, Toure told Sky Sports: “I am ready for a new challenge. I’m here to try to be ready and help the team as much as I can.

“The Champions League is a great competition and I always look forward to it.”

Toure could make his debut for Celtic in their Champions League qualifier against Astana on Wednesday.

The defender, an Africa Cup of Nations winner in 2015, has spent the last 14 years in England’s top flight, having won the Premier League and FA Cup with Arsenal before joining City in 2009.
