Celtic boss Neil Lennon confirmed on Tuesday that Maryan Shved is back in full training.
The Ukraine winger suffered an injury earlier in the Hoops' pre-season campaign and hasn't yet made a competitive appearance under Lennon.
In fact, Shved, who joined Celtic under Brendan Rodgers for £2 million in January [The Scottish Sun] and was immediately loaned back to Karpaty Lviv, hasn't even made his debut for the Parkhead side yet.
And despite being available soon, he might face a serious fight to get into the team on a regular basis.
That is because Lewis Morgan has thrown down the gauntlet to him and Scott Sinclair by impressing on the left-hand side of attack so far.
The Scottish winger - who spent the second half of last season on loan at Sunderland after an anonymous time under Rodgers prior to that - was one of Celtic's stand-out performers in a 2-1 win over Sarajevo in Glasgow last week.
As things stand, Shved, when he is available, could be Lennon's third-choice option and that must disappoint the 22-year-old.
He will have arrived at Lennoxtown this summer with the hope of having a big season, and although that's still very possible, his route to first-team football has a few daunting obstacles in the way.
