ERIK SVIATCHENKO is determined to become Celtic’s Greatest Dane.
The 25-year-old international central defender, who arrived at Parkhead just over a year ago, has already picked up two honours – last season’s title win and the 3-0 Betfred League Cup Final triumph over Aberdeen in November.
His fellow-countryman Ulrik Laursen,won three honours during Martin O’Neill’s reign.
Sviatchenko could overtake the left-back’s tally by May if the Hoops clinch the treble to take his haul to four.

The centre-half is enjoying the champions’ winter training camp in Dubai and said: “It’s nice to be another Dane that’s part of Scottish football and winning things.

“Morten Wieghorst and Marc Rieper, of course, also played here and people in Denmark always recall their time at Celtic.

“I will do everything I can to be as successful as the other Danes at Celtic and in Scotland.

“Being part of a successful Celtic is everyone’s aim.

“I’m very proud of my country and I’m proud that I’m a Dane playing abroad.

“I’m just grateful to have been part of two successes so far at Celtic and I want to keep going and winning things.

“It was nice to have a Danish flag to carry as we won the last trophy at Hampden.”
