Peter Lovenkrands isn’t Having Any of Erik Sviatchenko’s ‘Great Dane’ Aim

Peter Lovenkrands isn’t Having Any of Erik Sviatchenko’s ‘Great Dane’ Aim

Peter Lovenkrands finds Erik Sviatchenko‘s aim of becoming one the best Danish player to have appeared in Scotland pretty funny.

The former Rangers attacker spent six years at Ibrox at the start of his career, scoring 54 goals in 182 appearances and lifting six major trophies.

Brian Laudrup was the Dane who came before him, becoming a fans’ favourite for the 44 goals he scored and five trophies he won in four years in Glasgow.

While The Scottish Sun’s headline this week says he wants to become Scottish football’s ‘Great Dane’, Sviatchenko actually only says he wants to become one of the greats like Lovenkrands and Laudrup.

But some didn’t bother reading the story, with one sending a picture of the headline to Lovenkrands on Twitter before the Dane gave this response:

That tweet has proven pretty popular with Rangers fans who know that their former players look like always being the best Danish stars to appear in Scotland.
