Sviatchenko posts on Facebook after successful first season at Celtic

The Danish defender is hoping for more where this season came from at Parkhead.

Erik Sviatchenko is looking to the future after ending his first season at Celtic on a high.

The Dane arrived at Parkhead in January and became an instant hit with the Bhoys faithful, following a string of commanding displays.

After securing the Scottish Premiership title with a 3-2 win against Aberdeen earlier this month, Celtic rounded off the campaign with a 7-0 thrashing of Motherwell - their joint-biggest win this season.

"What a way to end my first season," Sviatchenko posted on Facebook, alongside a photo of the 24-year-old with teammates Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven, who were holding the Premiership trophy.

"It's has been some busy month with a lot of games but all have been great so far.

"Looking forward to having more of these experiences in the future. Happy to have scored, captained and played every game except one since I joined.

"Great to share a moment like this with some class boys ‪#‎StuartArmstrong‬ and‪ #‎GaryMcKaySteven‬ #‎celticfc‬"

Sviatchenko was brought to Parkhead by fellow Scandinavian Ronny Deila in January, but will have a new manager the next time he turns out in Green & White.

Former Premier League bosses David Moyes, Brendan Rodgers and Roy Keane currently lead the betting.

Whoever is appointed will be tasked with qualifying for the Champions League group stages for the first time in three years, as well as delivering the club's sixth straight Premiership title - amid the threat of Old Firm rivals Rangers, who knocked the Bhoys out of the Scottish Cup last month.
