WE reported earlier today that Maryan Shved was ruled out of Karpaty’s big game against Shakhtar Donetsk at the weekend after Ukranian club declared the Celtic winger was injured.

In his absence, Karpaty were thrashed 5-0 by the Ukranian giants which would have been bad enough for Maryan to watch.

However, the new Celtic winger who will join the club in the summer is now facing a sweat, along with his new employers whether he will be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

According to Karpaty’s manager Fabri Gonzalez they are now awaiting the scan to find out the true extent of Maryan’s injury.


“Maryan suffered a bad injury when he tore an adductor muscle in his thigh.” he told RecordSport.

“He is one of our best players and his absence certainly made it far harder for us against Shakhtar.

He will have tests and at this stage we don’t yet know the extent of his injury.”

At worst, this sort of injury could see a player miss three to four months of action while the more positive prognosis would be around three weeks.

Celtic hold their breath and hope the player won’t be joining the club already on the injury list.
