Celtic’s interim manager Neil Lennon has admitted everyone at the club is excited about loanee Maryan Shved.
The Bhoys signed the attacker back in January from Ukrainian top-flight club Karpaty Lviv, where he’s remained on loan for the rest of the season.
He cost the reigning Scottish champions £1.75million (Scottish Sun) and that’s toking like a decent piece of business.
Shved has made 23 appearances across all competitions this season and managed 14 goals in return.
Lennon has explained he’s been impressed by the Celtic loanee and is hopeful he can make an impact he links up with the squad at Parkhead for next season.
“I think we are all excited about him coming into the building. He looks a very exciting prospect so hopefully get to see him soon,” Lennon said in his press conference, as quoted by the club’s official Youtube channel.
Shved is certainly giving Celtic fans a reason to be excited about his arrival and he should be able to add some extra firepower in attack.
The Ukraine international already has one senior cap for his nation and is still just a youngster.
The 21-year-old has proven he’s got the pace and trickery to play on the wing, but has also found great success centrally too for current team Karpaty Lviv.
Celtic haven’t quite been at their brilliant best when it comes to going forward and perhaps their January recruitment can provide something fresh going into next year.
