MARIAN SHVED‘s dad has given an update on his son’s future as a move away from Celtic nears. The Ukrainian winger joined the club from Karpaty Lviv in January 2019 and was loaned back to the Ukraine club. However, whilst he was still on loan in Lviv, Brendan Rodgers left the club and was replaced by Neil Lennon.
Lennon gave Shved his debut but he has failed to make an impact on the first team, making just three appearances and scoring once. As reported by the Daily Record, Shved’s dad Vasily gave an update on the 22-year-old’s future.
“I think there will be clarity about Marian’s next club very soon. It’s in the hands of his agent now.
“The Scottish league was ended prematurely and Marian returned home due to the coronavirus and he kept himself in very good shape here.
“He’s 22 years old, plays for a top European team and is in the Ukraine squad, so he is fine.
“He still has a great future ahead of him.”
Shved was expected to go out on loan in January but Celtic wanted the winger speaking English at whatever club he went to, although no suitable opportunities arose.
However, another possible reason for Shved not going out on loan was that Mikey Johnston got injured two days before the window slammed shut.
The winger was injured at McDiarmid Park and with Moi Elyounoussi tentatively returning to action, Neil Lennon would have been unwise to let an attacking option leave the club with just one winger.
