Celtic’s development squad played a behind-closed-doors friendly against Aberdeen at the club’s Lennoxtown training facility and there were a few notable names on the team-sheet.

Wing stars Daniel Arzani and Marian Shved both got starts as they looked to impress Neil Lennon and see more competitive action for the first-team. Ismaila Soro also saw game time as the Β£2m January signing patiently waits to be given the green light to start his Paradise career.

Both players were involved in goals as Arzani’s shot was followed up by Karamoko Dembele for his side’s second before Shved added a third with just 33 minutes on the clock as the Hoops ran away with victory in a one sided first-half in which the Dons failed to cope with Celtic’s forward line.

Should Lennon "release" Marian Shved into the starting XI?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Fans of the Parkhead club took to Twitter at the news that the much maligned Shved and Arzani were both in action, hoping that they can kick on and make the step-up to Lennon’s team.

Shved has become an almost mythical figure around Parkhead with the youngster’s ability improving with every week that he isn’t in a match day squad, with Lennon changing his shape to one that doesn’t include wingers he may find first-team opportunities even slimmer – if that was possible.
