Celtic have confirmed that new signing Maryan Shved has been called up to Ukraine's national squad.

The 21-year-old has started training with his new Hoops teammates this week, having moved over to Glasgow from FC Karpaty Lviv now that the Ukrainian League has finished.

Shved will be hoping to add to the one cap he already has for his country, which came last November against Turkey, as his nation prepares to take on Serbia and Luxembourg next month in their Euro 2020 qualifiers.

 

 

The youngster was signed in January and loaned back to the Ukrainian club for the remainder of the season, during which time he scored six goals in seven games, picking up March's Player of the Month award in the process, though his final game saw him sent off for two yellow cards.

Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon confirmed on Thursday that Shved cannot play for the Scottish Premiership champions this season, but aside from describing him as a "very exciting player, added that he already looks at home with his new teammates.

Here is how some of the Parkhead faithful reacted to the positive news about their new player:

Shved has scored 15 goals and registered four assists in all competition for Karpaty this season, according to Transfermarkt.
