Brendan Rodgers departure might be good news for Celtic new boy Maryan Shved

Brendan Rodgers made some strange comments after Celtic signed Maryan Shved.

Brendan Rodgers has left Celtic midway through the season and moved back to the Premier League.

Leicester City unveiled Rodgers as their new manager on Tuesday, shortly after Claude Puel was sacked.

And in turn, Celtic moved to bring in Neil Lennon until the end of the season with their long-term managerial direction yet to be decided.


But Rodgers’ departure could be good news for Celtic’s January signing Maryan Shved.

The 21-year-old winger is an exciting prospect, as evidenced by his recent hat-trick against Vorskla Poltava while on loan at Karpaty Lviv.

But when Shved joined Celtic, Rodgers gave an unenthusiastic interview, suggesting he was unimpressed with this addition.

As reported by Sky Sports News in January, Rodgers said: “I can’t say I know a great deal about him…We’ve got about a million wingers and don’t need another one but he’s a talent and in the summer we’ll probably lose wingers and he’ll look to come in.”

These are not exactly glowing reports from the man who was set to become Shved’s manager.

The young Ukrainian winger certainly looks a talent and he now will get a fresh start with a different manger who is more enthusiastic about working with him.
