Report: Celtic attacker could return to former club, Lennon has final decision

Glasgow Celtic winger Marian Shved is a loan target for former club Kaparty Lviv if Hoops manager Neil Lennon is willing to let him go, according to The Scottish Sun.

The 22-year-old signed a long-term deal with the Scottish giants in January 2019 and was immediately loaned back to the Ukrainian side. 

He has failed to make much of an impact this season under Lennon and has made just two appearances in all competitions.

Shved is clearly a player with a lot of potential. His first spell with Kaparty Lviv and even his loan spell with them from the Hoops proved that he has a killer instinct in front of goal.

As the culture of Ukraine is vastly different to that of Celtic, a plausible explanation for why he has struggled to live up to expectations so far could be because he has not managed to adapt to the culture of Scotland.

It remains to be seen whether Lennon still hopes to work with Shved and if he does not, he could opt to send him to his former club on loan. 

If Lennon still has hopes of integrating Shved into his first-team, he could also opt to rather send him on loan to another Scottish side.

This will allow him to get used to the culture of Scotland as well as play in an environment which contains less pressure than that of Celtic.

Lennon will need to make an important decision on the future of the one-time capped Ukraine international soon.

He has high potential and needs to rediscover confidence and form soon.
