Ex-Celtic star sure the club can recover from Champions League blow

Ex-Celtic star, Erik Sviatchenko, is positive Celtic can recover from their blow in the Champions League.

The exit at the hands of Cluj, was a big blow for Celtic and Scottish football on a whole, but Sviatchenko thinks his former team can put the match behind them.

He said: “It was disappointing as I know how much the co-efficient points matter to Scottish football just as much as the victories as it’s the same with us in Danish football.

“That’s why it would have been good for us to have won at Ibrox, even if we didn’t go through, as a victory would still have helped our coefficient. But Celtic will bounce back, especially as Rangers appear to have something to say this season. I’m looking forward very much to watching the season unfold.

“I’m looking forward to it because, as I’ve said before, it’s always good to have more than one team dominating in the league. Even though I have Celtic in my heart and I hope they will go on and give everything to achieve nine-in-a-row and then the magical number 10.

“All the best to Celtic players and hopefully they will reach this record.

“I will take every piece of history there is, especially as I had such a wonderful time at Celtic. There are still some titles to win, call me when they win them!”
