Efe Ambrose says he is 'always grateful' to Celtic coach Brendan Rodgers, and claims he holds 'no grudge' against him.

The 29-year-old was shipped out of Parkhead on loan to Hibernian earlier in March and the center-back has long recovered his form under Neil Lennon at Easter Road.

The Nigerian was on the scoresheet as Hibernian fought back from two goals down to secure a dramatic 2-2 draw against his former side.

"Well, I thank God for his favour upon my career. He is behind my good performances," Ambrose told Goal.

"For my critics, criticism is part of the game and that has only made me stronger, better and will drive me to the next level of my career.

"I do not hold any grudge or bitterness against my former coach (Brendan Rodgers) because be helped my career behind the scene and I will always be grateful for the opportunity he gave me."

Reflecting on his goal and draw against the Hoops, Ambrose said: "It was a great feeling for me scoring my first league goal this season but the draw was a great result for us.

"Celtic were not better than us in that game but had luck on their side to be ahead of us first. I remembered promising to score soon. But I never expected it will happen so soon and let alone against my former team,” he said.
