Saints Set To Raid Celtic
Thursday, 4th Jan 2018 11:14
Saints look set to be about to raid Celtic, but who is the surprise target on their radar, read on to find out.
Saints are being linked with Celtic central defender Erik Sviatchenko according to reports North of the border.
Sviatchenko will be familiar to Saints supporters being part of the Midtjylland side that knocked Saints out of the Europa League two seasons ago and the 6ft 1 Dane played in both matches.
The Danish side's form in that competiton led Celtic to sign him in a 4 1/2 year deal in January 2016 and initially he was a big success at Parkhead, however injuries have blighted his time and this has led to him being overtaken in the pecking order.
This season he has not played a League game for Celtic and Brendan Rodgers has told him he has no future at the club, Saints are believed to be taking a look at him as are Copenhagen in his home country, however neither have yet made a formal approach.
Given that he is out of favour at Celtic he would not be expensive and with Saints struggling big time in the Central defensive department he could represent a good punt to cover a few bases both should Saints fail to capture any of their big money targets in this position, or as cover if they do.
Certainly he has the experience neccessary and he is well loved by Celtic's supporters being first choice right up to this season, many of them had hoped that on his return from injury he would be given the chance to recapture his former form, but it seems Brendan Rodgers has other ideas.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
