Celtic coach stops Efe Ambrose from joining Nigeria’s Olympic squad


Samson Siasia’s bid to take Efe Ambrose to the
Olympics in Rio has been quashed by Celtic
coach, Brendan Rodgers who is in the midst of a
defensive crisis and is loathe to lose another
defender. Brendan Rodgers is wrestling with
injury problems in central defence, with Croatian
Jozo Simunovic and Dedryck Boyata likely to
miss the start of the Scottish Premiership


Nigeria will play Japan in their first fixture on
August 4, just 48 hours before Celtic begin their
league campaign against Hearts. With no FIFA
regulations forcing clubs to release players for
the Rio games, however, Celtic have told the 27-
year-old he is needed at home for the opening
weeks of the new campaign.
Ambrose flew to Slovenia with the squad on
Monday for a 10-day pre-season camp.
