Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has joined Nigeria international Efe Ambrose at Scottish champions Celtic from Liverpool on a one-year contract.
The move was confirmed by Celtic on their official website on Sunday.
Toure, 35, reunites with former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers at Celtic Park.
The centre-back, who played in Liverpool’s Europa League final defeat to Sevilla in May, was a free agent after the expiry of his contract at Anfield. He will rival Ambrose for playing time in the heart of Celtic’s defence.
Commenting on Toure’s signing, Rodgers told Celtic’s official website: “I brought Kolo into Liverpool to add that bit of experience and help to the centre-halves there at the time.
“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.”
