Efe Ambrose arrival wins approval of St Johnstone fans

St Johnstone have completed the signing of Celtic and Hibs cult hero Efe Ambrose – leaving fans happy with the defensive acquisition.

The 32-year-old provides experience to a young defence coping to life after the loss of captain Jason Kerr on transfer Deadline Day. Ambrose won multiple Scottish Premiership titles with Celtic, making himself a cult hero at the Parkhead club, achieving similar status with Hibs. He now joins Callum Davidson’s Saints.

He was last with Livingston and has been training in Scotland since his departure from the West Lothian club at the end of last season. St Johnstone are still hunting their first league win of the season after a 2-1 loss to Rangers at McDiarmid Park on Saturday.

Michael O’Halloran put Saints ahead but Kemar Roofe and James Tavernier sealed a loss. Davidson said: “There are a lot of things there that were really pleasing. The big disappointment was when we went 1-0 up we went we started making basic mistakes and got out of our shape too easily and allowed Rangers to apply pressure.”

Fans of the McDiarmid Park club are, however, are happy with the signing of Celtic and Hibs cult hero Ambrose. Saints return to action next weekend against Aberdeen, looking for their first league win at the sixth attempt.
