Former Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose has given some words of advise to his Hibernian teammate John McGinn who is set to join Celtic.

Ambrose himself has played for Celtic for five years, and told McGinn to fight for his shirt when he gets to Celtic.

The Bhoys are negotiating a transfer fee for the 23-year-old midfielder, although an initial £1.5 million fee has been rejected by the Easter Road outfit.

“Celtic is a place that comes with huge responsibility and the fans are special,” Ambrose told The Sun.

“I am not surprised to see Celtic come in for John. He has done so well for this club and he has helped put us in the position that we are in today.

“But if he does get there he will need to fight for his place.

“There are quality players all around you and they all want to play but I think John can make the step up.

“If he does join them, then that is just football and we would wish him well.

“He has the quality and the ability to succeed there.”

McGinn could be missing in action when Hibernian take on Blackburn Rovers in a pre-season friendly game on Sunday.
