Erik Sviatchenko has described the moment Tom Rogic scored and the celebrations that followed as unbelievable.
The 24-year-old Danish defender revealed when he first signed he watched the special nights at Paradise on YouTube and was looking forward to witnessing that atmosphere first-hand.
As Celtic stumbled their way through the last two months and producing uninspiring performances, there wasn’t much cause for celebration despite an eight-game unbeaten run.
However, when Tom Rogic unleashed a cannon of a shot in the last minute at Rugby Park , emotions ran high as fans, the management and players alike erupted.
Sviatchenko also witnessed the first Ronny Roar as the magnitude of the result overcame the Norwegian manager and wants it to stay.
As quoted by the Scotsman, Sviatchenko said:
The goal was unbelievable. I was right behind Tom and saw him turn onto his left foot and hit it. I just thought ‘Yes, it’s going in’. It was such a good strike.
It was the first time I have seen the manager’s celebration after a game and it’s perfect. It would be nice to see more of it. It gives you goosebumps.
It is a good memory for me. It just happened when everyone was jumping and shouting while celebrating the goal. I’ve never experienced anything like that before. It was unbelievable.
I said when I came here that I wanted to hear the song Just Can’t Get Enough and the fans did it today.
The win over Kilmarnock in the final minute moved Celtic four points clear and following Aberdeen’s loss to Motherwell, they could see themselves move seven clear with a game in hand after the international break.
Celtic play Hearts on April 2nd at Paradise in what will be a high-profile game for Ronny Deila’s side as they go in search of five-in-a-row.
