Exclusive: EFE AMBROSE Delighted To Make Champions League Team Of The WeekGlasgow Celtic defender Efe Ambrose has been rewarded for his stand - out performance against Barcelona in the Champions League, with UEFA naming the Nigeria international in its prestigious Team of the Week which was announced on Thursday.

Had it not been for Jordi Alba's late, late winner, the Scottish powerhouse would have left the Nou Camp with a memorable draw.  Ambrose, a versatile player, did his best in neutralizing Barca's attacking threat spearheaded by Argentina superstar Lionel Messi.

Speaking on making the UEFA Champions League Team of the Week, Ambrose told allnigeriasoccer.com: ''When I started playing professionally, I had ambitions of playing in the Champions League. I am elated to be chosen in the Team of the Week especially as it was picked by professionals. It's a recognition of our good team work against Barcelona and the whole team deserves this nomination.

The 24 - year -old has acknowledged the support the team received from the Celtic faithfuls in the unforgettable clash against Barcelona.

''I am short of words to describe the feeling of the fans when we conceded that late goal against Barcelona. But I believe it is the will of God and we pray the reverse fixture will be in our favor.

''The Celtic fans were amazing, supporting the team from the beginning of the game until the end, and that's what differentiate these supporters from other clubs' supporters. They are very passionate about Celtic,'' says Ambrose.

Efe Ambrose has suited two times for Glasgow Celtic in Europe's premier club competition.
