Efe Ambrose compounded his Champions League dismissal with a second red card yesterday as a shadow Celtic side were thrashed 6-1 by Tottenham Hotspur in a friendly in Finland.

The defender was sent packing for two bookable offences in the last eight minutes as three first-half strikes from Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado and Lewis Holtby put the English Premiership side firmly in the driving seat despite Jamie Lindsay pulling one back for Celtic on the cusp of half-time.

Spurs then ramped up their superiority with three more goals from second-half substitutes Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Emmanujel Adebayor. The result guaranteed a miserable end to a traumatic week for Ronny Deila's side following their midweek 4-1 mauling against Legia Warsaw.
