Efe Ambrose: ‘Cut your mistake,’ Celtic boss, Rodgers, tells Nigerian defender


Nigerian defender, Efe Ambrose has been told by his Celtic coach, Brendan Rodgers to cut his mistakes.

Over the years, Ambrose has been known to be error-prone and was guilty again in Celtic’s 0-1 loss away at Lincoln Red Imps in a Champions League qualifiers.

The defender failed to deal with a long ball down the middle which a Lincoln Red Imps player latched on to score the winning goal.

Celtic manager, Rodgers has however warned the 27-year-old to cut his errors.

The Celtic manager believes the Super Eagles defender can be an asset for the club if he makes less errors.

In terms of Efe, people have seen him a lot more than me, and he knows that if he can cut out mistakes and errors that he makes in games, then you have a very good player,” Rodgers told Celtic’s official website.

Physically, he’s very strong, he’s very fast and he’s good in the air. It’s just about decision-making and simplifying the game and if he can do that, then he can be an asset.

Ambrose was in Celtic’s starting line-up as they battled to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday, July 29 at Astana in the first leg of their third round Champions League qualifier.
