New Celtic signing Maryan Shved is not fazed at all by Brendan Rodgers’ departure from the club, happy to work with any new manager that is in charge come the summer when he returns, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

Shved was the last signing of the Brendan Rodgers era and a player who the ex-Celtic boss offered some bizarre quotes about, claiming that the Hoops did not need him just days before his signature.

It was one of the signs that things were not right behind the scenes at Paradise.

Shved though believes none of if it will have an effect on his Hoops career and is focused on playing well for his new manager.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, the Ukrainian winger said of Rodgers’ departure:

I am very happy for him. He must believe he is taking a step forward by moving to a very good club like Leicester City. I will meet with the new coach when I get to Glasgow in the summer.

It does not affect me in any way.

I spoke to Brendan Rodgers, he is a good person and I wish him luck in his new job. He even spoke with me in Spanish. I got the impression he rated me highly.

It’s impossible for me to say if it’s good or bad he has left Celtic because I never worked with him. Nothing changes for me.

Shved is in dynamite form this season and his performances for Karpaty Lviv should be getting Celtic supporters very excited right now.

His hat-trick for the club in league action last weekend means he has now scored 11 goals in 18 matches, emerging as one of the top talents in the Ukrainian top-flight.

When he comes back in the summer he will be competing for first-team places alongside James Forrest and should add the kind of quality that gets supporters off their feet.

I can’t wait to see him in the hoops.
