Efe Ambrose helps Celtic to UCL victory

The defender was part of the team that won 3-0 in Belfast on Wednesday against Cliftonville after being rushed back into the side

Efe Ambrose played in Celtic’s 3-0 defeat of Northern Irish champions Cliftonville in the Uefa Champions League second round qualifying game on Wednesday.

The defender was rushed back from his holiday by coach Neil Lennon after injuries to the team’s other defenders.

Mikael Lustig, Giorgos Samaras and James Forrest scored for the Scottish champions who will see the second leg match as little more than a formality.

Ambrose played all 90 minutes of the encounter as the Bhoys chase a second season playing in the European top club competition.
