From Wikipedia: Kolo Abib Touré (born 19 March 1981) is an Ivorian professional footballer who plays for Scottish Premiership club Celtic as a defender.

Beginning his career at ASEC Mimosas, Touré moved to Arsenal in 2002, where he made 326 appearances for the club and was a member of the famous 03–04 ‘invincibles’ side. In 2009 he moved to Manchester City, where he was joined a year later by his younger brother Yaya Touré, helping City earn its first league title in 44 years. In 2013 Touré transferred to Liverpool. He is one of the six players who have won Premier League with two different clubs, having won it with Manchester City and Arsenal.

Touré is the second-most capped player for the Ivory Coast, with 118 appearances from 2000 to 2015. He represented the team at the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup tournaments. Touré also represented the Ivory Coast at seven Africa Cup of Nations in 2002, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2015, helping them finish runner-up in 2006 and 2012, while winning in 2015.
