Celtic’s Efe Ambrose warns against complacency

Efe Ambrose says that Celtic have not yet won the Scottish Premiership title this season.

Celtic defender Efe Ambrose has told the club’s official website that he and his teammates cannot become complacent.

The Bhoys are currently at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with 63 points from 26 matches, six points clear of second-placed Aberdeen.

Ronny Deila’s side, who hammered Aberdeen 4-0 at Celtic Park on Sunday, also have a game in hand, which means that they are now firm favourites to win the league title.

However, Nigeria international centre-back Ambrose is not getting carried away and has urged his teammates to keep their feet on the ground.

“The title is not won yet as there are two months to go,” the 26-year-old told Celtic’s official website.

“For us every game is important, not just Aberdeen. It’s every other game from Sunday onwards that is important to the league.

“We just take it game to game and keep winning and that’s the most important thing – the mentality of this club. We want to win games and that’s what the gaffer is bringing to the team again – the mentality of winning.”

Could Celtic slip up?

Earlier in the season, there were doubts on whether Celtic could continue to dominate the Premiership when Deila was still finding his feet in Scotland.

However, it is now pretty clear to all Scottish football followers that the Hoops will win the Premiership again this season - their fourth in a row.

It will not exactly be a walk in the park for the Glasgow giants, but it will come as a huge shock if they slip up.
