Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers hailed Kolo Toure's performance in victory at Aston Villa.

The defender has arrived to replace the retired Jamie Carragher.

"He (Toure) has been brilliant," Rodgers said.

"Obviously you know Jamie Carragher well and it was very important to get someone in of a similar ilk.

"We need that experience. He's 32, he's fit and he's got that winning mentality and he's been very influential in the changing room."
