Ambrose debuts in Scotland

The Nigerian international defender came on as an 86-minute substitute for Scott Brown in Celtic's 2-0 win over Dundee United on Saturday in the Scottish Premier League.

Ambrose had to wait to make his debut for Celtic because of work permit problems, which were finally sorted out last week, affording him the opportunity to make the bench for his club's Champions League match against Benfica last wednesday.

Celtic defeated visiting Dundee United courtesy of goals from English striker Gary Hooper and Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Ambrose, who turns 24 next month, joined Celtic from Israeli side FC Ashdod during the summer, and is hoping to break into the starting line-up and make an immediate impact at his new club.
