Celtic fans are getting very excited about having Maryan Shved at the club next season after the starlet impressed over the weekend.
Shved bagged a hat-trick for Karpaty Lviv as his side brushed Vorskla Poltava away with a 4-0 win away from home.
Celtic snapped Shved up in the January transfer window but immediately sent him back to Karpaty Lviv for the remainder of the season.
The left-footed right-winger has been in impressive form for the Ukrainian top division side and this weekend was no exception.
Shved got the ball rolling with a well-taken penalty, beyond the goalkeeper’s reach despite him guessing the right way.
And then the 21-year-old turned smartly in the box before finishing with his right foot.
Shved completed his hat-trick in style, rounding the goalkeeper then dragging the ball back from a defender before slotting into an empty net.
The once-capped Ukraine international made it look easy against Vorskla – a team who played against Arsenal in the Europa League earlier this season.
Celtic fans took to Twitter to discuss Shved’s performance and they are tipping him for a bright future. Below are some opinions on his hat-trick.
He looks a player

Penalties, quick feet and a cool head for finishing, should fit right in.

Right from the earliest clips I seen, you can sense a very technically sound young player who'll be well equipped for European football. Hopefully, he will cope with the tight pitches & less cultured defensive tactics here.
