Another one gone – Celtic confirm sale of winger

Marian Shved has left Celtic after Dom McKay agreed to sell the winger to Belgian side KV Mechelen. The player that was signed for £2m as one of the last arrivals of the Brendan Rodgers era. However, he failed to make his mark during his time in Glasgow meaning that he was loaned to the Belgians last season and now, The Celtic CEO has pushed through the sale.

The winger, signed from Karpaty Lyiv, made just three appearances for the club – scoring once. The Ukrainian was signed in January 2019 while Rodgers was at the club and loaned back to Lyiv. When he arrived that summer, Neil Lennon was in charge but Shved failed to make any impact in the time he had at the club. He was loaned to the Belgian side but given Lennon moved on, he may have fancied a crack at a Celtic Park redemption. Although given he was absent from pre-season training, it was obvious that both Celtic and Shved saw a parting of the ways as inevitable.

Good luck Marian, we will always have that goal against Nomme Kalju.
