The former Arsenal and Manchester City defender ended his career in the summer after a one-year spell with the Hoops.
He departed and it looked like he may take on a job with the Ivory Coast FA, but it was then confirmed last month that he’d been added to Brendan Rodgers’ technical team.
If Toure wasn’t planning on being busy enough with that, he’s now added to his workload by becoming Ivory Coast manager Marc Wilmots’ assistant.
With both roles, it looks like Toure is very serious about becoming a manager in the future – with the national team job perhaps an achievable short-term target whenever Wilmots moves on from the job.
It’s not clear exactly what the ex-Liverpool man is doing at Celtic, but all of Rodgers’ praise for him suggests an important role helping the young players at Lennoxtown develop into first team players.
Toure played 17 times for Celtic last season, helping the team to Champions League group stage qualification before they completed a treble and unbeaten domestic season.
