Training shrugs on back day

All,
 
I'm about to start a 4 day split, as follows: Back / Bicep, Chest / Tricep, Shoulders & Legs.
 
However, I was thinking of doing shrugs on the back / bicep day, rather than the shoulder day. 
 
Would that be a problem?  Is there any reason why i shouldnt do that?
 
Thanks,
Matt

    I always do shrugs on back/biceps day as well, it just makes sense cos its a pull movement and your traps are in your back! But I doubt it matters too much either way

    A whole day for shoulders but chest & triceps on the same day? If that's the case then I'd definitely add shrugs on shoulder day because it's going to be a pretty light day on exercises otherwise.

    Since traps are back muscles and not shoulder muscles then yes, train on back day.
