for a rescue mission as they take on AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League on
Celtic have suffered a poor run of form in the group stage
of the competition, occupying the bottom of Group H with just three points from
Ambrose was in action for the Scottish side in their last
Champions League game against Ajax on November 6, where they lost 1-0.
Celtic, who are the Scottish Premiership leaders defeated
third-top Aberdeen 3-1 on Saturday, and approach Tuesday’s game with a record
of 16 wins, five draws and only two defeats in the group stages of the
Milan will arrive in Glasgow seeking their first away win in
Europe this season, their last victory coming almost exactly a year ago, when
they defeated Anderlecht 3-1 in Belgium to secure a place in the last 16.
That draw at home to 10-man Genoa - their fifth in 13 games
- left the seven-time European champions 18 points behind Serie A leaders Roma
and 14 behind the first Champions League qualifying place occupied by Napoli.
However, Ambrose and his team-mates still have a hope of
qualifying from the group stage if Barcelona beat Ajax in the other game.
Barcelona top the group on ten points, and are trailed by
Milan – five points, Ajax – four points and Celtic – three points, with two
more games left to play.
