By Harvey Byrne
Stuart Armstrong has shared that Celtic teammate Erik Sviatchenko is the fastest to leave the training field.
The 24-year-old midfielder conducted a question and answer session on the official Hoops Twitter account to which he was asked who was the fastest in the Scottish giants team.
Armstrong answered full-back Cristian Gamboa to the question before jokingly naming Sviatchenko as the fastest to leave training, stating he is often coming up with an excuse to leave.

Sviatchenko’s eagerness to leave the training pitch has not seemed to affect his career at the Glasgow giants after starring in 51 appearances for the club since joining for £1.5million from FC Midtjylland in the January 2016 window.
Of those appearances 33 have come in all competitions this season and he has played in the back four of 20 of the Hoops’ 26 unbeaten league matches this campaign.
