Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose signs new 4-year contract with Celtic
Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose has agreed to a new 4-year contract at Celtic, a deal which will keep him at the Scotland club till 2017.

Efe Ambrose, who was one of the shining stars at the last African cup Nations for the Super Eagles surely deserves the new deal as he has been in fantastic form for both club and country this year.

The 24-year-old Nigeria international arrived in Glasgow in August 2012 after joining for an undisclosed fee from Israeli club Ashdod.

"He's already an important player for us," said Celtic manager Neil Lennon. "Efe has been fantastic and he's low maintenance in terms of injuries.

"He's got terrific pace, terrific athleticism and he's improving."

"He gives us an extra dimension in the way we play," added Lennon.

"When teams are camped in, he's not afraid to bring the ball out from the back and take a risk now and again.

"I don't want to discourage that because he's becoming consistently good at it."

Ambrose has scored once this season, in the Champions League qualifier at home to Cliftonville, and is enjoying his time in Scotland.

"Celtic are a massive club, one of the biggest in Europe, and the history behind the club is great," he said.

"I still believe I have a long way to go. But this deal shows how committed to the club I am.

"I feel at home here, my family is settled and that is important to me."
