Celtic target Kolo Toure is still undecided over his future, according to The Daily Record.

Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers, who previously signed the centre-back for Liverpool, admitted to The Scottish Sun last week that he was interested in the idea of taking the free agent to Glasgow.

Despite being 35, the two-time Premier League champion showed enough at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp last term to suggest he still has plenty to offer.

And The Daily Record has reported that the former Arsenal and Manchester City defender is still considering his options.

Rodgers has already lured highly-rated French striker Moussa Dembele to Celtic in a move which might convince his other targets that the Northern Irishman is planning big things at Paradise.

Toure would be a fine signing irrespective of age and Celtic fans who watched Liverpool in the second half of last season would surely love him at Parkhead.
