Celtic Defender Erik Sviatchenko Channels His Inner Peaky Blinders On Instagram

Celtic Defender Erik Sviatchenko Channels His Inner Peaky Blinders On Instagram

Erik Sviatchenko is rapidly becoming somewhat of a cult hero at Celtic.

The defender has established himself as a central figure in Brendan Rodgers‘ side.

The 25-year-old stopper – who joined the Hoops from FC Midtjylland – has formed solid partnerships with both Dedryck Boyata and Jozo Simunovic during his time at Parkhead.

But it’s his off-field antics which have seen him grow into a fans’ favourite.

The Danish star is big on social media and is always finding new ways to engage with fans and keep them entertained.

And in his latest post, he was doing his best Peaky Blinders impression in a shop mirror.

The Celts ace posed for a picture wearing a flat cap just like the one worn by Tommy Shelby in the hit Birmingham gangster series.

It’s not the first gag Sviatchenko has pulled in recent weeks.

He performed his own impersonation of the ‘Salt Bae’ chef craze while preparing his dinner.

Sviatchenko and his Hoops team-mates thrashed Inverness 4-0 in the Highlands on Wednesday to move to within seven points of the title.

Rodgers men are in Scottish Cup quarter-final action against St Mirren this weekend before turning their attention to the Old Firm derby on March 12.
