The Hoops have been linked with a deal worth around £2 million for the winger who is available from Karpaty Lviv in his homeland, with the midfielder rated as one of Ukrainian football’s most promising talents.
Shved plays his football wide on the right and likes to come in onto his left foot, but, however, it seems the arrival of Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah has seen Celtic reach their full quota of wide players – for now, at least.
Rodgers addressed the rumours as he met the media after Wednesday night’s 4-0 win at home to St Mirren:
Brendan Rodgers says Celtic have been in contact with Maryan Shved’s reps but if he signs for Celtic it’ll be one for the future: “We’ve got about a million wingers, we don’t need another one”

Do you think another wide player would do well at Celtic, and are you surprised the club isn’t being linked with more defenders?
