Kolo Toure is yet to find a club after being released by Celtic this summer, but says he hopes to continue his playing career.
The 36-year-old has spent most of the summer in Ivory Coast training and coaching within the national team set up.
He told Press Association: “I just want to carry on playing if there is a good option. But at the same time if there is a good opportunity as a coach I’d like a player-coach role to inspire young players because that is what I was doing at Celtic for the last six months.
“We spoke about me going on the staff and I was waiting for an offer to come but nothing is done yet and time is going on.
“I still have something to offer. I have had very few injuries and I can still bring my experience and fighting spirit.”
