CELTIC flop Marian Shved fired another Champions League warning to Ange Postecoglou’s side ahead on Wednesday’s Group F showdown in Warsaw.

The Ukrainian winger made only three substitute appearances for the Hoops after joining for £2million in January 2019 – just three weeks before Brendan Rodgers quit to take over Leicester City.

Shved was immediately shipped back on loan to Karpaty Lviv before returning to Parkhead in the summer where he was largely ignored by Neil Lennon.

RARE APPEARANCE…Marian Shed in action during Celtic’s 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Clyde at Broadwood in February 2020.

The 23-year-old international finally quit Glasgow 14 months ago after a temporary transfer to Belgian side Mechelen and he switched to Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer.

The player has hit the ground running for his new side and thumped in a double in the Ukrainians’ 4-1 win over RB Leipzig in Germany during the week which brought an instant dismissal for the Bundesliga club’s boss Dominico Tedesco and his assistant, former Celt Andres Hinkel.

Shved continued his scoring form with another goal in his side’s last-gasp 2-1 league triumph over Chornomorets Odessa at the weekend, according to a report in the Sunday Mail.

Celtic’s Euro rivals fought back from conceding an early opener to Maksym Bragaru to give Igor Jovicevic’s side three points.

Shved levelled with a header 15 minutes from the end and Oleg Ocheretko claimed the winner in stoppage time.

Marco Rose, installed as boss after Tedesco got the axe, guided RB Leipzig to a 3-0 home league victory over Borussia Dortmund with strikes from Willi Orban, Dominik Szoboszlai and Amadou Haidara.
