Maryan Shved has played 20 minutes for Celtic this season.
Celtic fans are reacting on Twitter to Maryan Shved’s latest setback.
The Ukraine winger has returned to Glasgow for rehabilitation after the country’s football federation announced that he was being sent home from international duty with an ankle injury.
Shved, a £2 million signing in January [The Scottish Sun], only joined up with Celtic this past summer but has struggled for games under Hoops boss Neil Lennon.
He has played only 20 minutes for Lennon this season and it looks like it could be a while before he is eligible for selection again, although the seriousness of this issue hasn’t been determined as yet.
Nevertheless, Shved, signed by Brendan Rodgers, is an exciting talent and here’s how Celtic fans reacted to the 22-year-old’s injury.

Shved injured last night ☹️— Charlie Connelly (@CharlieConnel17) September 6, 2019
Injury blow? Let us not use hunspeak.— jDB (@jDB34772262) September 6, 2019
Lennon himself has admitted that Shved was already ‘frustrated’ with his lack of action for the Scots and this is bound to disappoint him even more.
His only appearance for the Bhoys yielded a goal – a great goal too, against Nomme Kalju in Champions League qualifying.
But there was no follow-up appearance and time will tell when Celtic fans next see him in action.
