Efe Ambrose goes on trial for ‘Rangers’ contract

Efe Ambrose played as a trialist for Cove Rangers as he closes in on a deal with Paul Hartley’s side.

The defender is bet known from his time at Celtic but has also turned out for Hibs, Livingston, St Johnstone, Dunfermline and Morton and appears to be in no mood to hang up his boots after a decade in the Scottish game.

Despite being relegated from the Championship on the final day of last season Cove have taken the decision to go full-time as they consolidate after just five seasons in the SPFL that has featured two promotions and a relegation.

Ambrose returned to Celtic Park in January as a Morton player but is now ready to drop down a division as the Press and Journal reports:

Former Celtic and Hibernian defender Efe Ambrose could be set to move to Cove Rangers.


The 51-times capped Nigeria international has been training with the League One club as he seeks a new club.


The 34-year-old spent most of last season at Morton after joining the Cappielow outfit in October, but played only 13 times and was freed at the end of the campaign.


The former Hibernian, Livingston and St Johnstone defender featured in a bounce game for Cove on Tuesday night as Hartley’s side defeated a scratch team of unattached players 3-0.

Ambrose joined Celtic from Israeli side Ashdod in 2012 and had a mixed experience which isn’t the best for a defender.

He started 28 European ties but a nightmare performance at home to Juventus in 2013 following Nigeria’s African Nations Cup triumph was one that he never quite recovered from even though there were medals and handstands that followed on.

It seems that Scottish life and football has been very agreeable with another chapter about to open up at the Aberdeen based club.
