Marian Shved has issued an update on his lack of first-team football this season and revealed he has been promised an opportunity if he continues to work hard in training.

Speaking after his substitute appearance for Ukraine last week, Shved opened up about life at Celtic and what Neil Lennon has told him to do in order to gain first-team opportunities this season, according to the Daily Record.

I am happy I moved to Scotland. It’s a different style of football than what I have been used to back home. I am working hard and learning so much. The coaches and manager of Celtic have told me if I keep working hard I will soon start to get minutes on the pitch for them, but it hasn’t happened yet.

It was great for me to get on the pitch against Ukraine and hopefully I will get some minutes for Celtic soon too.

Do you think Shved will get a chance after the international break?




Shved is clearly working hard and will be hoping to impress Lennon enough to earn further first-team chances this season, after playing just 35 minutes of football so far this season. 

The Hoops’ congested run of fixtures following the international break could well be the Ukraine international’s best chance to make a positive impression, given how Lennon is likely to have to rotate his squad.
