Maryan Shved is expected to play for Karpaty Lviv this weekend after the Ukranian club sent a not so subtle message to the Scottish media.

The winger missed last week’s defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk with reports surfacing that he had suffered a serious muscle rupture which could bring his season to a halt.

Celtic signed Shved in January in a £1.75m deal and immediately returned him to Karpaty Lviv for the remainder of this season.

Had the injury been serious it’s likely that it would be assessed by Celtic’s medical team in order to put together a rehabilitation programme.

With those fears dismissed Karpaty will be hoping that their star player can help them up the table from their current position of ninth in the 12 team league- seven points adrift of eighth place.

If all goes to plan Shved is expected to join Celtic for pre-season training in June.
