According to BBC Sport, 35-year-old former Liverpool Kolo Toure defender looks set to complete a move to Celtic after attending a medical in Glasgow.

The Ivorian worked under the Scottish club's new manager Brendan Rodgers until the Northern Irishman was sacked from the club in late 2015.

The duo are set for a glorious reunion in the north of Britain, however, Toure may be leaving England with a slightly more positive reputation than his former boss, emphasis on the slightly.

The former Arsenal centre-back developed a sort of cult following at Anfield and despite a handful of errors during his time at the club, he produced some decent displays for the Reds.

Toure featured on 26 occasions last season and proved his worth in the Europa League under Jurgen Klopp, most notably in the two semi-final ties against Villarreal.

Social media predictably erupted at the impending transfer and let's just say several people added a comical twist to the news, poor old Toure.

A Premier League icon departs for good, a true character who sometimes clattered into referees were fun, what a hero.
