CROCKED Celtic centre-half Erik Sviathchenko says he is “hoping and praying” for a positive scan result after being forced off through injury in the 1-0 win over Rosenborg on Wednesday.
The Danish international was substitued after 25 minutes in Trondheim, having struggled with the groin problem that had ruled him out of the first leg the previous week.
Sviatchenko wrote on Twitter he is hoping the result of his scan will be positive, adding that he is “proud of the boys and the team” for securing a result that booked the Hoops a play-off spot in today’s draw in Switzerland.
Nir Bitton came on as a replacement as he switched from his normal midfield role to play alongside Jozo Simunovic.
The ball-playing Israeli international may keep the place for tomorrow’s Premiership opening against Hearts at Parkhead.
