Maryan Shved is bound for Celtic after picking up an ankle injury.
Ukraine’s football federation has revealed that Maryan Shved has been sent back to Celtic after picking up an ankle injury.
The Hoops winger was included in Andriy Shevchenko’s squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers this month.
But the former AC Milan hitman, a Ballon d’Or winner in 2004, will not get to use him after the Celtic attacker – who officially signed in January – returned to Glasgow.
A statement read: “Unfortunately, Marian Shved has returned to his club after suffering an ankle injury and will not travel to Lithuania.”
Shved arrived at Lennoxtown this past summer after a £2 million deal [The Scottish Sun] was struck with Karpaty Lviv during Brendan Rodgers’s spell at Celtic, though the current Leicester City manager left before having a chance to use his signing.
It’s been a tricky start to life at Parkhead for the 22-year-old, who Bhoys boss Neil Lennon admitted was ‘frustrated’ at how things have been going [The Glasgow Evening Times].
And this ankle injury is another hammer blow to Shved’s chances of turning things around in Scotland, but time will tell how serious the issue is.
