Ex-Eagles Defender Ambrose Makes Scottish League Team Of The Week

The SPFL announced the Team of the Week on their verified Twitter handle on Tuesday.

“Started in his natural position for the first time this season and excelled as Livingston defeated Ross County on Saturday,” SPFL wrote.

“In addition to his defensive duties, Ambrose’s range of passing was a major plus for the West Lothian side in their 1-0 triumph.”

The game against Ross County was Ambose’s fifth appearance for Livingston in the league.

The win was Livingston’s first in the league this season after six games  (three defeats, two draws).

  • It’s so unimaginable to see Efe Ambrose still playing at such high level at the Scottish premier league, getting high ratings at the age many of his contemporaries have gone into oblivion due to crippling age and injuries. It would be recalled that he was part of the illustrious SE squad that won the 2013 AFCON, playing a crucial part from the right back. He was well famed for his proclivities for joining the attack from his wing back position in an effortlessly fashion which produced on many occasions an attacking outlet to the team. He was such a delight to watch. Efe’s long limbs and his dashing runs combined brilliantly to the successful aspirations of the team with the likes of Victor Moses and Ideye and Emenike great benefial of his marauding runs during the biennial tournament.

    At 31, he looks to be about the only survival of the under 20 team still playing at the top level.
