David Hay has advice for new Celtic boss regarding defender

Celtic should sell Efe Ambrose in the summer transfer window, suggests David Hay.

David Hay has written in The Glasgow Evening Times that Celtic should sell Efe Ambrose in the summer transfer window.

Ambrose has been on the books of Celtic since 2012 and has a contract until June 2017.

The Nigeria international, who can play as a right-back or as a centre-back, has not had a good season.

The former Ashdod defender has made mistakes and appears to be past from his prime.

Former Celtic midfielder Hay believes that it is time for Ambrose to leave the Scottish Premiership champions.

“The Nigerian was responsible for two goals being given away against Aberdeen last Sunday and for one goal being lost against St. Johnstone on Wednesday,” Hay wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times.

“I would think the new manager will look at the mistakes Efe has made this season, and there has been a lot of them, and ask him to move on. I think it would be best for the player and best for the club if he did.”

Ambrose is an experienced defender, but his performances have been disappointing this campaign and there have been too many mistakes.

Perhaps the new manager could keep the Nigerian in the squad, but he should not be part of the starting lineup.

Ronny Deila is in charge of Celtic at the moment, but the Norwegian will leave the Scottish Premiership giants at the end of the season.

It will be interesting to see who gets the Celtic managerial job after Deila.
