The 31-year old first signed for the hoops back in 2012 under Neil Lennon. At times, he looked a good defender and was seen as a bit of a cult hero in his time at the club.
However, many fans will, unfortunately, remember Efe for the mistakes he made which he was certainly prone too. In particular, his performance against Juventus when he was thrown into the side shortly after arriving back from the Africa Cup of Nations.
He was a favourite of Neil Lennon’s with the Northern Irishman also signing the Nigerian centre-back during his time at Edinburgh side, Hibernian.
Ambrose also had a short spell at Derby County and is now of course at Livingston. It is good to see Efe doing well there and now getting his first steps into coaching with the club side of the game.
