CELTIC FANS are a large group and you’re never going to have complete agreement throughout the support. However, lately, we’ve seen a significant proportion of the support mystified as to why Brendan Rodgers sent Erik Sviatchenko out on-loan.
The defender is flying high with his loan club FC Midtyland who currently top the Danish league.
The player is back in action this morning as Midtyland takes on Hobro with an opportunity to extend their lead at the top depending on results elsewhere.
A lot of Celtic fans have been seeing some of the mistakes our defenders – especially Jozo have been making since Erik left. There is a twinge of ‘the heart grows fonder’ about the calls to bring Erik in but the defender never really got a run of games this season due to injury and Rodgers clearly doesn’t fancy him.
In my estimation, Erik would have been better served staying at the club and could have positively contributed to the second half of the season.
The Dane is only out on-loan. I wonder after the season is over if there will still be any noise about wanting to keep him at Celtic beyond the summer.
Erik has a lot of time still left on his contract, and the defender signed by Ronny Deila could have a future yet. Especially if Erik comes back with a league winners medal!
