Rodgers Backs Model Professional Efe Ambrose After Boos From Celtic Fans

Celtic coach Brendan Rodgers defended defender Efe Ambrose after he was booed by some fans during Celtic recent 0-3 loss to Barcelona in a pre season game.

Ambrose scored an own goal in the game which lead to boos from a section of the fans who have been far from impressed with the form of the Nigerian, who was once upon a time the toast of the fans.

The boos didn’t sit quite well with Manager Rodgers who called for the fans to support one of their own, who is going through a difficult spell, instead of dragging him further down with boos.

“It wasn’t nice, whatever his fault are, he’s a real good guy who gives his all for the club. He devotes his life to Celtic, he prepares well, he trains well, he doesn’t cheat.

“He trains every single day, he’s a man who wants to get better. I would like to think the Celtic supporters will support every player that plays, whether that’s Efe or anyone elde.

“Once they pull on the green and white jersey, everyone needs that support” He said in a recent interview.
