Forgotten Super Eagles star Efe Ambrose reacted after joining Livingston on a 18-month contract and could make debut against his former team Hibernian on Saturday.
The 31-year-old Nigeria international had been without a club since being released by English Championship side Derby County at the end of last season where he failed to make an appearance for the Rams since signing for them in February 2019 and last featured in a game in December 2018 when Hibs lost 1-0 in the Edinburgh derby at Easter Road.
Livingston unveiled Ambrose to the media earlier this evening and could make his debut against his former club Hibernian at Easter Road on Saturday.
Ex Kaduna United defender said: “The move comes down to my pal (Marvin Bartley), the gaffer and Davie (Martindale, assistant manager). Marv knew me and really helped out to bring me to this club.
“Marvin has told me it’s a great club. When I was at Derby I was always talking to him and he told me about his move to Livingston and I was happy for him. He he has told me so much about the club and I have played against the club and know the mentality of the club.
“For me, I think coming here is going to help me as well as me helping the club.”There was interest from other clubs, nothing concrete came up but Livingston came first.
”The centre-back tallied four Scottish top flight during a four-year stint at Celtic and has an Olympic silver medal to his name along with winning the African Cup of Nations in 2013.
Livingston are currently fifth in the Scottish Premiership, just four points off third place Aberdeen and a Europa League spot.
