Nigeria's Efe Ambrose was in action for 67 minutes on Sunday as Celtic moved 21 points clear at the top of the SPL table with an easy 5-0 victory over bottom club Dundee at the Celtic Park.

Manager Neil Lennon made five changes from the XI that drew 1-1 at St Johnstone but kept faith with Ambrose who worked effectively like always as his teammates Joe Ledley got a brace while James Forrest, Dylan McGeouch and Gary Hooper had a goal each, reports

Goals galore

The Bhoys were ahead as early as the 13th minute after Rab Douglas spilled Emilio Izaguirre's cross, allowing Ledley an easy tap-in.

They then killed the game off when Matt Lockwood, five minutes after being brought on at half-time, denied Hooper an open goal with his sliding challenge. Lockwood saw red for his troubles, and Forrest sent Douglas the wrong way from 12 yards.

The floodgates predictably opened as McGeouch added a third with a powerful back-post header, before Ledley added his second with 17 minutes remaining. Hooper registered Celtic's fifth late on as they saw out the match with ease.

Ambrose made way later on for his African compatriot Victor Wanyama.
