Celtic boss disappointed in Efe Ambrose

02 October 2015, 12:11

Edinburgh - Celtic manager Ronny Deila has slammed Efe Ambrose after his mistakes led to the club losing a two-goal lead to Fenerbahce on Thursday in the Europa League.

The Scottish champions led 2-0 against their Turkish counterparts courtesy of goals from Leigh Griffiths and Kris Commons.

But a poor back-header by Ambrose, gifted Fernandao the opportunity to get Fenerbahce back in the game just before half time, an outcome which got Deila fuming as he described it as a 'disappointment'.

Ambrose's bad night wouldn't end there, as he was once again culpable, as Fernandao, once again, got the better of the Nigeria defender by out-jumping him minutes into the second half to equalize, and the Celtic boss was less than happy.

"We started the second half poorly and then they get 2-2 from a set-play," Delia said.

"That is something we need to sort out, to get better for sure.

"I'm disappointed but happy with the effort of the team because we had a good chance to win the match," Delia added.

The 27-year old Nigeria defender has struggled to earn regular playing time at the club, first losing his place to Dutchman Virgil Van Dijk, and then to Belgian Jason Denayer, and now Jozo Simunovic.

He has been called up to replace injured Kenneth Omeruo for Nigeria’s two international friendly games against Cameroon and Congo in Belgium.
