This article forms part of our Total Duds feature series, which is where Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a player has fared since being signed or sold, using statistical figures and statements from pundits to prove how bad a deal the club got.
Back in January 2019, Celtic managed to acquire young winger Maryan Shved for £1.80 million from Ukrainian side Karpaty, per Transfermarkt. He was then loaned back to Ukraine for the rest of the season, building up the anticipation for his full arrival in the 2019/20 campaign.
He started off by making a good impression but with recent news suggesting he is not wanted by the club anymore and considering his spell so far at the Hoops, it looks like Shved will be a total dud.
In his first competitive appearance for the side against Kalju FC on the 30th July in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, the 22 year-old managed to score and this showed promising signs, however he would only go on to make two more appearances for the rest of this season in all competitions, scoring no more goals.
His last appearance was on 9th February in a cup match and his lack of minutes has not been due to injuries either, per Transfermarkt. There were two matches this whole season where the player had a slight knock, but for the rest of the games Neil Lennon has either named him as an unused substitute or not even included him on the bench at all.
Clearly he is not rated by the managerial team at the club and this is further supported by an article from Football Insider which reports that the Hoops will be telling the player he is surplus to requirements and will be shipped out in the summer.
His value has already decreased on Transfermarkt as he is currently worth £1.08 million, emphasising that the Scottish side will probably lose money on him. Sadly he hasn’t had the desired impact at Parkhead and it now seems likely that he will go down as a total dud for his time at the club.
Are the Celts not given Shved enough time? Comment below!
