The Danish defender, is in the dark over his future at Celtic, leaving many fans puzzled. Only last year he was tipped to be the next captain but has fallen that much he can’t even get a game for the Hoops.
As Compper has recently signed for the Celts, for around £1.5million, Sviatchenko is looking like he won’t play again and perhaps be out the door for January.
He’s struggled to hold down a place in the Celtic squad, and Rodgers’ seems likely to accept the former Midtjylland man to leave. Copenhagen tried to buy him for £2.7millon in July and Besiktas attempted to loan him in August which was also rejected by the club.
Paper talk about @eriksviat leaving in January? Personally prefer him to Boyata. Would rather he left instead!🍀

Apparently he is off in jan. asked to play once more and was advised that won’t happens in case he gets injured. Please note my word “apparently”

Wats wrong with ERIK SVIATCHENKO? I never seen him put a foot wrong in a celtic jersey, yet it appears he's for the exit door, they are doing the opposite of the right thing at celtic

Plenty of English Championship clubs are rumoured to be interested in him, signalling that his time is up, especially with the defensive problems Celtic face, yet he still hasn’t played for 3 months.
