Celtic fans have shown some sympathy for Efe Ambrose after he opened up about the day they broke his heart.
The Nigerian defender is temporarily away from the club after joining Hibs on a 93-day emergency loan deal.
He hasn’t kicked a ball for Celtic since the 1-1 draw with Astana in the Champions League qualifiers in July last year.
So Ambrose has now got the chance to talk about what went wrong for him after sealing the move to Neil Lennon’s Hibees.
According to the Nigerian, he was left sad by fans who cheered his substitution in the pre-season friendly defeat to Barcelona.
Per dailyrecord.co.uk, Ambrose said: “After that day I was sad about the reaction but I was just trying to do my job and defend.
“I wasn’t trying to kick the ball in the net, I was just trying to defend. That’s my job, to defend.
“Sometimes you get it right, sometimes you get it wrong. When that happens, that’s when you need the people’s support. I didn’t get it that day but that’s life.”
While some fans believe he deserved the stick he got, others have shown sympathy for Ambrose after reading his comments:
What’s your view? Was Ambrose made a scapegoat?
