Maryan Shved’s form should concern Celtic’s Oliver Burke

Celtic winger Maryan Shved was amongst the goals again for Karpaty Lviv.

The star, who was bought by the Hoops in January for £1.75 million and immediately loaned back to the Ukrainian outfit (The Scottish Sun), bagged a 97th minute equaliser in the Ukrainian Cup against FK Inhulets with a well-taken finish.

Shved’s crisp strike – his 14th of the season – took the game to extra time, but Karpaty went on to lose the tie on penalties.

The winger said of his red hot form, as quoted by The Scottish Sun: “I feel like I am improving all the time and adding goals to my game has been a bonus.

“We are now third in the league and we’re playing well. For me to score the five goals recently has been brilliant.


“I go to Celtic in the summer and I feel I can handle the move.”

One man who may be keeping a close eye on what Shved is doing for Karpaty is loan winger, Oliver Burke.

TBR’s view

The form of Shved comes at a time where Burke is really struggling to make a strong case at Parkhead.

The West Bromwich Albion player made a bright start following his January move, scoring four goals in his first seven games, but has struggled in recent weeks for the Scottish champions.

The player appears to be settled at the club and has hinted towards a permanent move, but with Shved looking sharp it might be hard for the 21-year-old to seal his desired move.

Burke has shown he struggles to operate as a lone striker, and he has rarely featured in his natural position on the wing for the Bhoys so far.

If he does not significantly improve his form between now and the end of the season, then he can surely forget all about a permanent move with the exciting Shved to come in ahead of 2019/2020.
