Centre-back Sviatchenko has become something of a cult hero to the Celtic fan-base since arriving in Scotland in January 2016, and his performances both domestically and in Europe have proved his worth to Brendan Rodgers’ team.

Now THAT is a barnet – and like we said before, it immediately reminded us of Portuguese striker Cadete, who thrilled the Parkhead crowd back in the 1996/97 season by scoring 30 league goals in 37 league matches.
Perhaps if Sviatchenko were to grow his hair back he’d perhaps be able to replicate Cadete’s incredible scoring ratio.
Just a thought.
