Efe Ambrose: Made things difficult for Lionel Messi in Celtic's win over Bar

After losing to Benfica in their last game, the SPL club must better the Portuguese club's result in their final group match against Spartak Moscow to qualify for the last 16.

And Ambrose thinks the memory of keeping the likes of Lionel Messi quiet can prove an ideal formula.

He said in the Daily Record: "Messi is a good player and nobody will argue against that but we made things difficult for him and he will never forget playing against a team like Celtic.

"That is the spirit we will be taking to the last game to make sure that we win, although the result from the other game in the Nou Camp will determine our fate.

"But we are going to do our best to ensure we make it through. I strongly believe we are going to make it. We started well and want to finish the good work.

"I know it's going to be tough but we are ready for the challenge. Our last game is back in Scotland against Spartak Moscow and we know what we have to do.

"It was a great achievement to beat Barcelona and I can never forget that game. But we have to look beyond just beating Barca. We want to go far in the competition."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
