ERIK SVIATCHENKO hopes Denmark turn on the style at Hampden tonight – to silence Celtic team-mate Leigh Griffiths.
The Hoops striker had a pop at his Parkhead pal’s choice of gear recently and the central defender responded: “I saw him talking about my fashion sense in the newspapers. It’s a good laugh and a bit of fun.
“Leigh’s fashion sense? He comes into training in nice jogging suits – they always match. I would say Leigh can score the goals then maybe ask me for the fashion advice.

“It will be interesting going up against Leigh in a game. He’s been such a key player for us at Celtic. I hope I can get some time on the pitch against him.”

Sviatchenko, who has impressed since joining the Hoops during the January transfer window, has been giving the Danes the lowdown on his Celtic mates and is hoping 18-year-old left-back Keiran Tierney gets his debut for the Scots.

The centre-half, who will pick his fifth cap this evening, said: “KT has made a great start to his career. To play alongside him has been a pleasant surprise to me.

“I didn’t know of him before I signed for Celtic. But I know him well now and he’s been playing with this freedom. It’s like he feels, ‘I can do everything and I will do everything’.

“It’s nice to see such a young player get a first cap and I would be surprised if it’s his last. There is no doubt he is a big player of the future.”
