EFE AMBROSE will run down his contract at Celtic after failing to seal a loan move with Blackburn Rovers this evening.
It looked as though the late-night deal was done and dusted, but a hitch developed with Owen Coyle’s Championship strugglers and the frozen-out Nigerian will return to Parkhead.
The Scot had been chasing Ambrose throughout the January window before admitting defeat.
The versatile defender, who has played only two games under Brendan Rodgers, is a free agent in five months’ time.
Poor old Efe just never seems to have any luck.
