KOLO TOURE has revealed he is still waiting to discover if he has a future at Celtic.

The veteran Ivorian completed his one-year deal at the champions at the end of last season.

The 36-year-old central defender has been linked with a player/coach role at Parkhead alongside his former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

He admitted: “I just want to carry on playing if there is a good option.

“But, at the same time, if there is a good opportunity as a coach, I’d like a player/coach role to inspire young players because that is what I was doing at Celtic for the last six months.

“We spoke about me going on the staff and I was waiting for an offer to come, but nothing is done yet and time is going on.

“I still have something to offer. I have had very few injuries and I can still bring my experience and fighting spirit.

“Every training I give 100 per cent – even though I wasn’t playing at Celtic I was the best trainer there.”

Toure, who made 17 appearances for the Hoops, insisted he still felt part of the team’s historic unbeaten season for his second ‘Invincible’ campaign after achieving identical status with Arsenal.

He said: “Once, you can say maybe it was luck, but twice means you have been doing something good and I feel privileged for that.

“Even if you don’t play a lot you always bring something and the club knows I brought some experience and guided the young players.”
