Efe Amrose will miss out on Celtic games during the African Cup of Nations.


After making his full debut against Raith Rovers in the Scottish Communities League Cup, new Celtic center back  Efe Ambrose has quickly settled into life at Parkhead. Ambrose who showed his talent in the game against Raith Rovers was widely praised by manager Neil Lennon, for his control, pace, range of passing and general confidence on and off the ball.
But after helping Nigeria qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations, the Nigerian international will miss a huge chunk of this season as the tournament will take place from January 19 to February 10, which will mean Ambrose could possible miss out on all of the games during this period, depending on how well they perform.
 He was however delighted to send Nigeria on their way and looks forward to representing his country as he stated-"Going and winning in South Africa won't be easy because there are good teams in Africa and we know that. But we think we can be the best." Efe Ambrose.
