FORGOTTEN man Erik Sviatchenko has sent congratulations to his Celtic team-mates following the Hoops’ seventh successive Premiership title triumph.

The Danish defender, currently on loan back with his former club FC Midtjylland, revealed how he celebrated after watching the opening 45 minutes of the club’s runaway 5-0 success over Sevco Rangers on Sunday.

Sviatchenko, who was allowed to make the temporary switch back to his homeland to get game time by Brendan Rodgers, caught some of the action ahead ahead of his team’s match against AAB and said: “I watched the first-half and it was a great pleasure.

“Celtic led 3-0 at the break and then won 5-0, even against Rangers. I’ve participated in a victory like that, so I know how big it is to beat the rivals in that way – and especially when you win the championship.

“I’m still a Celtic player and I’m very happy that the team is doing well and that they have won the title seven times in a row.”

Sviatchenko, who is currently out with a thigh injury, has 12 appearances for the Danish Superliga outfit since his January loan move.

The 26-year-old centre-half has two years remaining on his Parkhead deal and has stated he will return in the summer before seeing where his future lies.
