Several Celtic fans have been discussing Erik Sviatchenko‘s Parkhead exit back in 2018.

The 29-year-old made the move to Glasgow back in January 2016 from FC Midtjylland in a deal which ended up totalling more than £2m.

Sviatchenko, who has five senior caps for Denmark, made 63 appearances for the Hoops during his stay in Scotland, winning six major honours in green and white.

He returned to Midtjylland on loan two years after arriving at Celtic and made a permanent move back to the club six months later for just over £1m. [Transfermarkt]

Sviatchenko has been handed the captain’s armband with Midtjylland back in his homeland, leading his team out in five Champions League games this season, two of which were against Liverpool.


@Celtic1967_com shared their views on the defender, believing that it was a mistake by the Hoops to allow him to leave.

Their post had plenty of Hoops fans talking, with many in agreement and one specifically talking about Sviatchenko’s ‘leap’ in the air.

@CelticWalks67: Had some leap on him

However, some supporters weren’t so sure…

Did Celtic get rid of Sviatchenko too soon?

Yes

No
