Erik Sviatchenko escaped Scotland v Denmark tonight with his legs intact – but we’re amazed that he didn’t pick up a serious injury after being on the receiving end of a thunderous Liam Bridcutt tackle.
It was a friendly between the two countries who won’t be in France in the summer after failing to qualify for Euro 2016.

As you can expect, there were a lot of Celtic fans watching on – and they were not happy with the challenge.
Sviatchenko has been impressive since moving from Midtjylland in January and looks like he could be a regular for Ronny Deila in the future.
