Erik Sviatchenko had been brought to Celtic when Ronny Deila was in charge and was also a part of Brendan Rodgers’ side that were nicknamed the “Invincibles” in the 2016/17 campaign.
However, the defender soon fell out of favour at Celtic Park and was sent out on loan to FC Midtylland, where he has since completed a permanent transfer.
Before the loan spell, he suffered an injury that meant he would spend time in the sidelines and with the performances of others, as well as the additions that were made, he knew his time was coming to an end.
However, it does not appear as though Sviatchenko has let that affect his memories of his time with the Bhoys and has admitted that he still has a dream of making a return to Celtic Park in the future.
“My dream would be to play for Celtic again,” he told the Daily Mail.
“But it’s not up to me. It’s up to the manager and the board. They know me and they know what I am capable of. I feel I didn’t really say a proper goodbye to Glasgow.”
Sviatchenko has certainly opened the door for a possible return to Celtic in the future, although it would not appear to be likely to happen in the near future.
The Hoops could certainly look to bring a new defender to the club to help them strengthen in an area of concern, however, with Rodgers being the one to allow the 27-year-old to leave in the first place, a return would not be thought to be on the cards.
The Denmark international looks to have got his career back on track in his homeland, but should Celtic become interested in their former player, they know he will be more than up for a return in the future.
