Celtic fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Erik Sviatchenko against Linfield on Friday evening.
Sviatchenko featured for Celtic against Linfield in the first leg of the Champions League second qualifying round away from home.
The 25-year-old central defender started the game at Windsor Park in Belfast and played for the entire 90 minutes, as Brendan Rodgers’s side won 2-0.
Scott Sinclair put the Glasgow giants in the lead in the 16th minute, and Tom Rogic doubled the advantage for the Hoops midway through the first half.
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Sviatchenko against Linfield on Friday evening; they are not happy and want Rodgers to sign a new centre-back.
Sviatchenko joined Scottish Premiership giants Celtic from Danish side FC Midtjylland in January 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £1.5 million when Ronny Deila was in charge, but the Denmark international is not guaranteed a place in Rodgers’s starting lineup.

Forrest wasn't to bed mate, sviatchenko poor— pol76celt (@paultrainor2012) July 14, 2017
A dread to think what a decent forward line will do to us with sviatchenko at the helm of our defence. A new centre half must be a priority.— Anthony Lomax (@atl1981) July 14, 2017
Caulker in sviatchenko out— Declan Hamilton (@67Hammy) July 14, 2017

How sviatchenko is a professional footballer I will never know— Mark (@MarkClose98) July 14, 2017
I'd sign another defender to replace Sviatchenko going forward and Hayes for Forrest also. Although would love Roberts back.— Andy Muirhead (@andymuirhd) July 14, 2017
Forrest and sviatchenko need replaced IMO, other than that a promising performance— Evan (@EvanMaley98) July 14, 2017
