If every player had a clock attached to his club career, Nigerian international Efe Ambrose’s own is being tossed mountain high by Celtic fans and yes, you guessed it- his time is up.
Hoops fans have voiced their concerns over Ambrose and are beginning to think the defender has gone beyond a joke after putting in a horrid display against Barcelona, where he scored a laughable own goal and got nutmegged for Barcelona’s third in a 3-1 defeat on Saturday.
in after the game to Sports Hotline to
voice their irritations with a standout comment being “Efe Ambrose is not an accident
waiting to happen. He is an accident that’s already happened. No offence to the
guy but his time is up at Celtic. We cannot afford to carry this guy for any

Some were surprised that he had been at the club despite change of manager “Why do Celtic not just print CALAMITY on the back of Efe Ambrose’s shirt? If Rodgers, Kennedy, Lawell, and Desmond cannot see the lack of football ability that this man possesses then they should head for Specsavers”
It would not be the first time Ambrose would be on the receiving end of supporters of the Scottish club and his errors at the club seem to be piling.
The first of his notable errors would start in 2013 in a Champions League game. Against Juventus, Efe would make two errors that would see the Italian club run away 3-0 winners drawing the ire of teammate Kris Commons and the Nigerian international would make headlines again after missing the team bus to training ahead of the second leg.
Also around this time in 2014, Ambrose led a squad against Tottenham in a friendly that saw him give away two goals in the dying minutes of the game and pick up a red card that he had also picked up four days earlier.
Former boss Ronny Deila would be forced to give him a stern warning after costing the team a valuable win against Fenerbache last year when a poor header and poor marking saw the Turkish team come back from two goals down to pick up a point.
And while the
game against Barcelona was just seen as Ambrose-being-Ambrose, his display
against a semi-professional club Lincoln Red Imps in the Champions League
second qualifying round cost Brendan Rodgers his first win in a competitive game
after some terrible piece of defending from the defender.

The aftermath would be Celtic fans setting up a justgiving page to help Fenerbache raise £1.5m to take the Nigerian away from the club, after it was reported the Turkish club were interested in him.

Celtic face Astana today in the Champions League third qualifying round, a game in which in the 1-1 first leg, Ambrose could not deal with a cross, which resulted in the concession of a cornerkick, that ended up being the goal scored by the Kazakhtani team.
Fans have called on Brendan Rodgers to take Ambrose’s history into consideration and drop the player for today’s game as starting him could have the club miss out on a £20 million Champions League jackpot.
