Sviatchenko targets reunion with Schmeichel on Europe's big stage
Erik Sviatchenko is eyeing Champions League football for Celtic next season where he could face Denmark team-mate Kasper Schmeichel.
The 24-year-old defender texted his congratulations to the Leicester keeper after the Foxes' astonishing Premier League title win - and automatic entry into European football's elite club competition - was confirmed.
Celtic effectively secured their fifth Ladbrokes Premiership and a place in the Champions League qualifiers with a 3-1 win at Hearts last Saturday although confirmation can come at home to second-place Aberdeen on Sunday.
The former FC Midtjylland player, who joined the Parkhead club in January, said: "I want to be in the Champions League. We have one goal and that is to flourish and go through.
"It would mean a lot. I have played in the Europa League group stages with my former team and that was a big experience.
"Kasper Schmeichel would probably be playing, I think he will be staying there now. Leicester have done great in the Premier League, and if we faced them it would be a nice game."
