–Upbeat the best of Scottish side will be seen this season
By Johnny Edward:
Super Eagles and Celtic defender Efe Ambrose has expressed delight at how the title race is going in Scotland.
Ambrose and his Celtic teammates were knocked off the top spot on the league standings after Aberdeen beat St Johnstone 2-0 at Pittodrie on New Year’s Day and the Hoops’ chance of a swift return was affected as their game at Partick Thistle was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Though it is looking rough and keenly contested now, Ambrose believes any possible threat to their title will simply bring the best out of the Celtic squad.
“Aberdeen are at the top and they deserve it, they are a great team and have been playing well,’ said Ambrose.
“We respect them and we look for a challenge from them. Not just them, Dundee United as well and we need to step up.
“The best of Celtic is going to come because we know there are teams behind us trying to take the title from us.
“What we need to do is win every game from now until the end of the season and I believe we have the ability and the squad that can do that.
