Celtic Defender Erik Sviatchenko Is Pretty Proud of His Goal Last Night Going By His Own Description Of It

Celtic Defender Erik Sviatchenko Is Pretty Proud of His Goal Last Night Going By His Own Description Of It

Celtic Park erupted last night as a surprise goal from Erik Sviatchenko gave the Hoops the lead in their 2-0 win over Ross County.

The victory confirmed Celtic’s unbeaten status at home on a domestic front throughout 2016 and set them up perfectly for Saturday’s huge Old Firm showdown.

It also saw the league leaders pull 16 points in front of nearest rivals Rangers with Mark Warburton’s men failing to leave McDiarmid Park with the win after Steven Maclean cancelled out Barrie McKay’s opener to earn St Johnstone a share of the spoils.

However, despite Stuart Armstrong grabbing his second goal in as many games, it was Sviatchenko who took the plaudits after netting from around 35 yards out.

The Danish defender collected the ball just inside the Ross County half and after skipping by Alex Schalk piledrived his effort into the bottom corner beyond Scott Fox.

It was a decent effort to be fair, however, judging by the continuous posts and videos, we can safely assume Sviatchenko is proud of his goal and his description today proves that.

Nothing like a bit of confidence, eh?
