Former Celtic defender Efe Ambrose was released by Derby County on Monday and Hoops supporters are fearful it could spark a Neil Lennon move for the Nigerian international.
Lennon of course is a big fan of the player having signed him twice in his managerial career, once for Celtic and once at Hibernian.
Ambrose, now 30-years-old, didn’t have the best reputation with Hoops supporters but did manage to make 169 appearances for the club, winning four league titles, a Scottish Cup and a Scottish League Cup.
Was Georgios Samaras a better player for Celtic than fans gave him credit for? Keith from C’mon the Hoops explains why he was in the video below…
Clearly though any move for him this summer would be seen as a step back, with supporters craving a more viable first-team calibre player at centre-back to play alongside Kristoffer Ajer or Jozo Simunovic.
Who that player is remains to be seen, but one thing fans seem certain of is never making a move for Ambrose, who will now be looking for a new club after failing to make a single appearance for Derby.
These supporters have taken to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts…

If Lennon signs Efe Ambrose then it shows that we're going backwards.

Efe Ambrose and Ajer – solid defence, Barker, Mallan and Horgan boosting from midfield – in the words of shakin Stevens – lovely stuff ? #teamLawwell
