Celtic FC of Scotland defender Efe Ambrose says he has put the disappointment of not making it to the UEFA Champions League proper behind him as he focused on the Europa Cup.
The Super Eagles defender to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil said the team will ensure they perform well in the Europa Cup while urging the fans of the green and white club to keep supporting their darling team.
Celtic lost 1-0 to Maribor in the play off of the money spinning competition to exit from the race to the tournament proper.
“That is football, you win some while you lose but one must continue to push for the best as professionals”, says the Nigeria international.
“We gave our all but it was quite unfortunate that we lost out in the race to the tournament proper. We have to put that behind us and focus on the Europa Cup and move on from there.
Ambrose however believes that the Scottish side will use the Europa Cup to make up for what they missed in the Champions League.
