Rodgers’ second Celtic signing edges ever closer after talks

Kolo Toure has arrived in Glasgow to finalise his move to Celtic, report ESPN.

The Ivorian central defender worked with current Bhoys chief Brendan Rodgers while at Liverpool, having signed the Premier League winner on a free from Manchester City in 2013.

Despite some good performances for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp, the 35-year old was released at the end of his deal at Anfield earlier this summer.

As a result, the Northern Irishman has swooped for the ex-Arsenal ace, who was part of their infamous ‘Invincibles’ side in 2003/04.

While with Manchester City, he won another Premier League title during his glittering spell in England.

Ahead of the Hoops’ Champions League qualifier in Kazakhstan in mid-week, the Ivory Coast international is expected to link up with the Scottish champions to bolster their defensive ranks.

He will follow Moussa Dembele through the door as Rodgers looks to improve on Ronny Deila’s side, one that failed to qualify for the continent’s elite competition two years on the bounce.
