Ambrose will hope his heroics at club level will continue when he joins the national team to prepare for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose, and his Celtic FC team mates have again being crowned champions in the Scottish Premier League.
The Nigerian defender, a key member for his club, starred for Celtic from start to finish on Wednesday night as they went away to beat Partick Thistle at Firhill and effectively sealed the Scottish Premiership title in style.
In the Wednesday night tie, Anthony Stokes put Celtic into the lead in the third minute before 17-year-old substitute Liam Henderson, on for right-back Adam Matthews at the start of the second-half, doubled Celtic’s advantage in the 49th minute with a low drive from 12 yards.
Norwegian midfielder Stefan Johansen added a third goal for Celtic in the 53rd minute to confirm the superiority of Neil Lennon’s side.
The hosts did attempt a comeback; scoring a goal through Christie Elliott to make the scores 1-3 but Efe Ambrose and his teammates responded two late strikes from Stokes and Kris Commons to end the game at 5-1.
The latest triumph, which is Celtic’s third successive championship victory, has been as comprehensive as it can be.
It is worthy to note that Ambrose and his teammates have lost only once in the league this season – against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
With three games drawn and with seven matches remaining, they can reach a record 105 points which now appears the new target for the team.
For Ambrose, he will hope his heroics at club level will continue when he makes the expected switch to the national team to prepare for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
The right-back has been a super regular under Coach Keshi as he effectively combines his defensive duties with helping upfront to get goals for the Eagles.
