Efe Ambrose focuses on Celtic after Nigeria agony

03 December 2014, 15:38

Edinburgh - Defender Efe Ambrose has shifted focus on club career after the Super Eagles could not qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, The Scotsman reports.

Nigeria lost the AFCON 2015 tickets to South Africa and Congo Brazzaville, and will not defend the trophy won in 2013 in the Rainbow nation.

Ambrose was part of the successful team and was also among the side that failed to book Nigeria an AFCON 2015 ticket.

The defender, though pained by the unfortunate event, has now shifted attention to club duties.

The former Kaduna United player had lost his status as a first-choice central defender at Celtic this season to Jason Denayer but is back in the team due to the Belgian teenager’s ankle injury.

This means Ambrose will be available for Celtic’s busy fixtures in early 2015, including the much-anticipated League Cup semi-final against Rangers on 1 February.

Ambrose said his availability for Celtic at that period is a bonus.
