KoloToure is optimistic despite being a substitute player

At the age of 35, almost every football player out there is thinking about hanging up their playing boots but KoloToure is a completely different story as the Ivorian defender recently spoke about his current situation in the Scottish outfit Celtic FC.

KoloToure joined Celtic FC back on July of 2016 but he has struggled trying to snatch a spot in the first team and become a first-team player.

Kolo Toure Could Make a Good Coach, Says Brendan Rodgers

Kolo Toure is on the verge of becoming a champion in Scotland after his Celtic team are close to sealing the league title even with several games remaining.

The former Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal defender moved to Scotland in order to be reunited with his former boss Brendan Rodgers. It has been a welcome change for the Ivory Coast star. Even though he may no longer be the first team regular,Toure’s presence in the squad has been extremely important. He has started only five league matches, as Rodgers has preferred players like Erik Sviatchenko.

Kolo Toure Ready for a Recall against Mönchengladbach, Confirms Rodgers

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers insists that the defender Kolo Toure will be ready for first team action when he is called up for the Champions League game against Borussia Monchengladbach.

The defender was highly self-critical of himself after making significant errors in the reverse fixture at Celtic Park. However, Rodgers, who has worked with Toure at Liverpool, says that the former Ivory Coast international remains a consummate professional who will be available when called upon. He fully expects Toure to return to the starting line-up for the upcoming visit to Germany.

KoloToure has made an instant impact at Celtic FC

At the end of the 2015-16 season, KoloToure made his way out of Liverpool and on July 24 of 2016 it was confirmed that the Ivorian defender joined Celtic FC as he reunited with his former boss Brendan Rodgers as both of them had actually worked together in Liverpool as they attempted to snatch the Premier League title but never managed to actually accomplish that objective.

Now that both of them have recently accepted to join Celtic FC, they are hoping to win the domestic title with the Scottish club and even though KoloToure has only joined Celtic FC around 4 months ago and despite being 35 years old, the Ivorian defender is a regular starter which is fairly surprising and impressive considering the fact that he is the oldest player in the entire squad but it hasn’t been an obstacle in his quest of adding more titles to his collection and extend his playing career further even at his fairly elevated age.

Brendan Rodgers sees Celtic not Favored for any League

Brendan Rodgers reckons there is a reason the people running the league system in England are not in favour of having Celtic in any division as they know the Celts would turn out to be a serious challenger for all the teams.

Rodgers is sure the Manchester City draw that his team achieved did not happen by a fluke or anything and if given chances, his boys in green and white can pull off similar figures against some of other big teams from England as well.

Kolo Toure Criticises His Own Performances in Champions League Defeat

Former Liverpool defender Kolo Toure was one of the culprits in the Champions League defeat suffered by Celtic.

The Scottish club lost to Borussia Monchengladbach in a result that effectively seals their hopes of reaching the knockout stages. Celtic were always expected to struggle in a group containing Manchester City and Barcelona. However, the games against Borussia Monchengladbach were seen as the only hope for the Scottish club to at least qualifying for the Europa League by finishing in the third place. A 3-3 draw with City in the previous game gave them a lot of hope coming into the home fixture against the German opponents.

But, something caused the signing to be cancelled at the eleventh hour.

Kolo Toure made his debut for Celtic

Former Liverpool defender Kolo Toure made his debut for Celtic in the Champions League qualifier against FC Astana.

It was an extremely important match for the Scottish club as doing well in Europe was their primary objective. There was a danger of being knocked out by the minnows from Kazakhstan, but Celtic managed to hold their nerves in the second leg at Celtic Park. Toure came on in the second half and managed to use all his experience to guide Celtic through. However, his impact on proceedings began much earlier according to Eoghan O’Connell.

Kolo Toure is certain that things will be great in Celtic

This is the first year of Kolo Toure as a player of Celtic as well as for Brendan Rodgers who is making his debut season as manager of the Scottish club.
