Celtic coach Kolo Toure should tempt younger brother Yaya to Parkhead to save his career.

The 35-year old mutually agreed a release from his contract with Greek side Olympiakos.

The world class midfielder has been out of sorts since leaving Manchester City and would have been on a bumper contract.

However, his pay as you play deal with the Greek side would give Celtic hope.

However, what evades the former EPL winner that his brother Kolo does have is a Scottish Premiership medal.

Kolo, a coach at Celtic, should speak to his brother who is back in the UK to secure a new club.

After a tough time in Greece, Toure would challenge the current Bhoys midfield and be a part of a winning team again.

The midfielder would be right at home with his brother and fellow Ivorian Eboue Kouassi.

Avenue to coaching

At 35-years old, Yaya can follow in his brother’s footsteps and use the Hoops as a means to run down his career.

He can play for a season or two when required but also gain a way into coaching.

Toure will be close to finishing his career at his age and he would gain a lot from Brendan Rodgers and Kolo.

The Celtic fans would take to Yaya immediately for his ability and stature in the game.

Fans still appreciate Kolo’s stand in performances, securing Champions League football before taking a step back.

In a financial sense, shirt sales for Yaya’s name on the back would also be through the roof.

If Olympiakos are able to secure the services of Yaya then why can’t Celtic?

The reason Toure left the Greeks was because of their unstable finances, however the Parkhead side are in profit with a tidy balance sheet.

This is the glamour name fans want, Rodgers and Peter Lawwell should be heading to London now.
