Former Celtic midfielder offers cult hero Efe Ambrose trial with League One side

Former Celtic midfielder Paul Hartley has offered Efe Ambrose a trial with Cinch League One side Cove Rangers. The Nigerian central defender started in their pre-season friendly match against Dundee as he looks to earn a deal that will see him continuing in the game.

Ambrose 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 while looking to seal a Premiership return for the Greenock side.

At 34, Ambrose has a lot of playing left in him but he has already begun a gradual transition into life after football by coaching and helping young players come through at Livi. Ambrose left Celtic with 4 Premierships and 1 of each the League Cup and Scottish Cup.

Ambrose has played for Hibs, Livingston, St Johnstone and Morton since leaving Celtic in 2017. The former Nigerian Internationalist decided to stay in Scotland in order to gain citizenship for himself and his family and he is fondly remembered by the Celtic support. In truth, he was an excellent player when he first came to the club but suffered through fans getting on his back at various points.
