Celtic fans react to Maryan Shved goal

Brendan Rodgers the head coach

Celtic loanee Maryan Shved scored a cracker on Sunday.

He might be gone, but Brendan Rodgers might have left Celtic with a very special player to arrive this summer.

Rodgers signed up Maryan Shved in the January transfer window, before loaning him straight back to Ukrainian side Karpaty Lviv.

The 21-year-old, who won the Ukrainian League’s Player of the Year award in 2018, has been in red-hot form as of late and continued that streak on Sunday.

Shved scored a cracker in the 2-1 defeat by Desna yesterday to make it 14 goals for the season - and four in his last three games.

 

Footage of the goal circulated on Twitter and here's how Celtic fans reacted to the strike:

Rodgers, who left Parkhead a month after signing Shved, will never get to manage the youngster in Glasgow, but his successor will and he might be a cracking parting gift.

The Northern Irishman already left behind one hell of a legacy, having won seven domestic trophies of a possible seven, but if Shved turns out to be the real deal then that'll only add to the impact Rodgers had in Scotland.
