Ex-Celt Efe Ambrose lands coaching role with Premiership side

EFE AMBROSE has landed a coaching role with Premiership side Livingston’s Reserves. The Nigerian defender is plying his trade with the West Lothian side and will be combining his playing duties with Assistant Manager duties alongside Gary Maley whilst Marvin Bartley takes over as the Livi Reserves manager.

The Premiership club confirmed on Twitter that their experienced trio would coach as well as play. Ambrose, who spent five years at Celtic, working under Neil Lennon, Ronny Deila and Brendan Rodgers. The versatile central defender will be able to impart his vast knowledge of the game to youngsters.

At just 31, Ambrose has a lot of playing left in him but it is good to see him beginning the transition into life after football by coaching and helping young players come through. Ambrose left Celtic with 4 Premierships and 1 of each the League Cup and Scottish Cup.

Elsewhere, Celtic’s Head of Recruitment Gary Penrice was casting his eye over Bristol City’s Niclas Eliason. The 24-year-old can play at left-wingback and right winger – two positions which Celtic need to strengthen in as the window draws to its conclusion.
