Return to Celtic for Efe Ambrose makes all the sense in the world

It is always a gamble when a player returns to a team after a spell away from the club. You never know if it is going to work out or not.

Neil Lennon will no doubt be wary of that when he officially takes over as Celtic’s permanent manager. However, there is one old Bhoy that it would make sense for Lennon to bring back to the club – Efe Ambrose.

Move hasn’t worked out

Ambrose left Hibs – and Lennon – in February to move to Derby County. However, the move to Derby didn’t work out, as he hasn’t played a single minute of football for them.

Ambrose’s contract with Derby only runs until the end of June, so the Hoops would not have to pay a fee to bring him back to Glasgow.

Very useful addition

Ambrose could be a very useful addition to the Hoops squad, as he could play at not only centre-back but also at right-back.

He was a mainstay in the Hibs side managed by Lennon, so we know that the soon to be appointed Celtic boss is an admirer of the player.

Ambrose doesn’t need sign a long-term deal with the club. Perhaps only a one or two-year deal would do. But if Lennon is looking to add experience to his team, the addition of Ambrose makes all the sense in the world.
