Neil Lennon joked of his concern at Efe Ambrose's spectacular goal celebration in Celtic's 5-0 Clydesdale Bank Premier League demolition of St Mirren in Paisley.

After Gary Hooper had opened the scoring for the visitors a mistake by Buddies keeper Craig Samson allowed the 24-year-old Nigerian defender to notch for the first time since joining the Hoops in the summer and then thrilled the travelling fans with a series of back flips.

The Celtic boss said: "My heart was in my mouth - I had never seen him do it before. If he had landed on his neck he could have been in trouble but he has been a huge asset."
