Ambrose credits teammates for Scottish award

Out- of - favour Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose has given credit to his Hibernian teammates for their part in his winning the Championship Player of the Month award.

Ambrose played his part to help the Scottish Championship club clinch promotion to the Premiership on Saturday.

He played all 90 minutes as Hibernian beat Queen of the South 3 - 0 .

Ambrose has won three Man of the Match awards since joining from Celtic on an emergency loan deal as well as scoring a vital goal against Falkirk , according to The Edinburgh Reporter.

His style of play has won approval amongst the Hibs fans who have composed a song in his honour.

Despite the personal accolades, Ambrose insists that his focus is on taking all three points today against Queen of the South which , depending on results elsewhere mean that automatic promotion is secured .

He told Hibernian TV , “Winning the Championship Player of the Month was a good feeling but it’ s not about me at all.

“As you know football is a team effort and not individual so credit to the other players and I appreciate everyone helping me.

“When I came here I just wanted to do my best and help Hibs to get back to the top league. ”

The former Israel- based player added, “I don ’ t want to think about next season as it’ s so far away . Securing this season for us is the most important thing right now . ”

Ambrose joined Hibernian from Celtic on January 31 and has scored once in eight league appearances for the club .
