Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with Kolo Toure's debut in victory over Stoke City.

The Ivory Coast international may be 32 but he may well provide the ideal replacement for the recently-retired Jamie Carragher.

"Kolo introduced himself to the crowd when he jumped about seven foot five in the first couple of minutes of the game - it was a wonderful leap and I think you could see his energy and enthusiasm," said Rodgers.

"When we lost Jamie Carragher last year, we were losing real experience - but Kolo comes in and offers that. He was excellent."
