Video: Efe Ambrose is Only Player Who Gets Praise From Neil Lennon After Aberdeen Defeat

Efe Ambrose is the only player who got praise from Neil Lennon after Hibs‘ defeat to Aberdeen today.

The Northern Irishman was far from happy with his players after they went down 4-1 to the Dons at Pittodrie in the early Scottish Premiership game.

Much was expected of Hibs considering how well they’d played in previous games against Celtic and Rangers.

But it was a very different Hibs that turned up in the Granite City, failing to lay a glove on Derek McInnes’ men in the loss.

The performance was poor, but the goals must have been disappointing for Lennon to see – yet he didn’t criticise Ambrose, who was directly at fault for Gary Mackay-Steven’s second goal after being caught on the ball.

Ambrose received plenty of criticism online, but Lennon has defended the Nigerian and actually praised him too.

Speaking to Hibs TV:

So Ambrose was the only player who actually looked like he wanted to do anything to turn around Hibs’ fortunes – and ‘Christmas is cancelled’ at Easter Road too.

That latter comment could refer to the squad’s Christmas party as he also confirmed they’ll be in training tomorrow.
