Celtic supporters fume at Leeds United's Liam Bridcutt on Twitter after latest Scotland match

Elland Road

Liam Bridcutt is on loan at Leeds United from Sunderland.

Celtic supporters have been left furious with Liam Bridcutt, after his strong challenge on Erik Sviatchenko yesterday.

Bridcutt came on as a late substitute in Scotland’s friendly match against Denmark, and he seemed determined to make an impact during his brief cameo on the pitch.

The Leeds United midfielder lunged into a fierce tackle on Sviatchenko, which has received widespread criticism from Celtic supporters.

Although the majority of Bhoys fans wanted Scotland to win, they were frustrated that Bridcutt put one of their player’s safety in danger.

Bridcutt’s tackle was one which did not fit the pattern of the match, which generally passed without incident.

Scotland and Denmark both bought into the spirit of the friendly, and there were few other strong tackles put in by either side.

Bridcutt’s challenge has certainly caused controversy, although it seems that Sviatchenko came out of it unscathed.

Scotland won the fixture 1-0 thanks to a first half goal from Matt Ritchie.

Bridcutt will now return to Leeds action at the weekend for their match against Rotherham United, while Sviatchenko is likely to feature for Celtic against Hearts.
