Celtic boss Neil Lennon has discloses that some of Marian Shved’s teammates are looking after him at the moment, as he is separated from his wife due to the global pandemic, reports BBC 5 Live Sport’s Twitter account.

The Hoops revealed that most of his players have returned to their own countries during the lockdown, but that is not the case with the winger.

“Making sure he’s okay”

“We’ve got one player Marian Shved from Ukraine, and his wife’s in Ukraine, so he’s on his own, so a couple of lads have taken him under this wing, and just keeping an eye on him, making sure he’s okay, cos his English isn’t great, and obviously we’re keeping in touch in that situation as well” Lennon said, as quoted by BBC 5 Live Sport’s Twitter account.

Shved might not have featured for the Hoops that often this season, however, it is good to see that the club are looking out for him, which of course is what the club has to do.

Hoops doing all they can to help player

It can’t be easy for the player, currently stuck in Glasgow during a pandemic whilst his wife is back in the Ukraine. However, it does sound as if the Hoops are doing all they can to make the player as comfortable as possible during this bizarre period we are currently living in.

That shows that the team spirit is still high at Celtic, which is important as it could be very easy for the players to get distracted due to the fact that there is no football looming on the horizon.


At the moment, it seems that the players are looking to help each other out during this downtime, and that can only be a good thing.
