Sunday's resounding 4-0 victory over St Mirren saw Celtic extend their unbeaten league record this season to 20 games and stretch their lead at the Scottish Premiership summit to 13 points.

It became eight clean sheets in a row in domestic competition in Paisley and Ambrose told this week's Celtic View: "It's satisfying and we're trying our best to see how long we can keep it going.

"It won't be easy but every day we have to improve and do better in each game we play. We are still trying to do this not only in defence but in every area of the pitch."

And the defender is adamant that the back-line aren't solely responsible for keeping the opposition at bay.

"It's not only down to the defence but it's down to the team - they have kept eight clean sheets, not just the defence," he explained.

The big victory over the Buddies was the perfect way for the Hoops to enter their short winter break which saw Neil Lennon's men head to Turkey to participate in a four-team tournament involving Ajax, Galatasaray and Trabzonspor over the course of seven days.

Ambrose is confident the trip will prove a useful exercise giving the Scottish champions another chance of silverware.

"He is the boss and we will do what he wants, and sometimes he is like a father to some of us as he has helped us with so many things," added the Nigeria defender.

"But we are not going to just relax, as we're going to take part in this tournament and we want to achieve something there," he added. "I think we are going there to prove a point.

"After going out the Champions League, winning that tournament would be very good for us."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

Blatter 'under investigation'

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
