In an interview to Football Insider, ex Rangers defender Alan Hutton has admitted that he expects to see Celtic winger Maryan Shved to be sent out on loan in the upcoming transfer window. The former Aston Villa man suggested that there is no real point in the speedster just ‘sitting around’ and not playing and that it would make sense for them to send him out so he could get some vital playing time.
When asked if the 22-year-old could be loaned out next season, Hutton admitted that Maryan Shved could be shipped out by Celtic. He replied, “I would have thought so. You can’t just sit there and train all day. They’ll be hoping in the summer that other options either in England or even in Scotland come up for him so he can jump to it and get back. You need to play, just sitting about doing nothing for half a season or a season is no good to anybody. It’s important that he goes out and plays games.”
What Has Maryan Shved’s Time At Celtic Been Like?
Ukrainian international winger Maryan Shved was scouted and signed by Celtic as a potential talent back in the January window of the 18/19 Premiership campaign. The winger spent the remainder of the campaign on loan at his former club, before eventually making the switch to Celtic just in the summer. Although the 22-year-old arrived with massive expectations, it’s must be conceded that he’s failed to live up to any of them.
Renowned for being a tricky winger who could get past people with ease and create chances with his flair, the former Karpaty man has turned out to be a dud for the Parkhead club. The attacker, who is also capable of operating as the second striker, hasn’t been able to create any sort of impact with the Celtic faithful either.
With only a little under 45 minutes of football for the Celts under his belt after joining last summer, it’s worth questioning whether moving for the Ukrainian was the right transfer in the first place.
What Kind Of Player Is Maryan Shved?
The diminutive attacker is known for his amazing dribbling abilities, as he possesses an extremely low centre of gravity. Capable of maintaining balance in even the tightest of gaps, some of the goals he’s scored at his former employers do resemble Eden Hazard’s wonder days at Chelsea. Despite being quite small in stature, the youngster was always tipped to have the confidence to beat any defender he takes on, but as it turned out, he’s failed to break into even the Celtic squad.
Maryan Shved Could Be Loaned Out By Celtic: Should Neil Lennon Give Him A Chance?
Although there’s no point in questioning Shved’s actual potential, the fact remains that the Ukrainian has failed to win over the Celtic fans in the year that he’s been here. For all the talk of the kind of player he was and what he could add to this side, Shved has turned out to be a letdown. The addition of a couple of good wingers is gradually becoming a necessity at Celtic Park, but that doesn’t mean that keeping Shved on for another season is going to solve any of the Celts’ immediate concerns.
