The distinguished career of Celtic cult hero Efe Ambrose continues at Bury

Another chapter in the career of Efe Ambrose. One of the game’s genuine good guys…

Former Celtic defender Efe Ambrose yesterday signed for English non league side Bury, the latest in a long line of clubs that the Nigerian has played for in a long distinguished and entertaining career.

It all started in his native Nigeria before moving to Israel and then Scotland where he spend the majority of his career representing no fewer than eight clubs including our own club where he won six major honours.

After leaving Celtic he would play for Hibernian, Livingston, St Johnstone, Dunfermline, Morton and Queen of the South with a short stint at Derby County in between.

Efe is quite the character, a lovable guy and a decent player. Yes he had a mistake or two in him which a lot of folk unfairly remember him for, but he was a model professional who played at the highest level in the game and acquitted himself well.

At club level he played in the Champions League, and the Europa league. While at international level he represented Nigeria no fewer than 51 times, playing at the World Cup, the FIFA Confederations Cup and the African Cup of Nations, a tournament in which he helped his nation achieve success in 2013.

Indeed he was named in the team of the tournament after several decent displays for the victorious Super Eagles as they were crowned Champions of Africa.

Even at 35 Efe shows no signs of calling it a day yet as he signed on at Bury, the 12th club of an illustrious career. All the best Efe, you are truly one of the genuine good guys in the game and will always be fondly remembered at Celtic Park, especially for your wonderful summersault  goal celebrations!
