Nigeria international defender, Efe Ambrose says playing for Celtic in the Scottish Premier League is as good as being in England.
Ambrose joined Celtic from Ashdod in the Israeli League on deadline day and has come out to say he will make the best of his stay in Scotland since Celtic will see him play in the lucrative European Champions’ League.
“Celtic is a great club with a lot of history and as far as I am concerned playing for Celtic is like playing in England because it’s the same as Manchester United or Manchester City,” Efe Ambrose said.
“I’m at home and I’m going to make sure I enjoy my new club and work hard for them.
“It doesn’t matter whether I play in England because right now I feel Celtic is the best place for me,” Ambrose said.
He added that playing in the Champions League was not an added motivation for him to pick Celtic.
“Everything that comes my way is planned by God because I never thought I was going to play in the Champions League but now I will.
“I never knew I would be going to Celtic or play in the Champions League,” Efe Ambrose said.
