Shrimps capture Celtic midfielder Liam Shaw on season-long loan

1 September 2022

Morecambe Football Club is delighted to confirm the season-long loan signing of Celtic midfielder Liam Shaw.

The 21-year-old progressed through the Sheffield Wednesday Academy, signing professionally with the Owls in 2018, before earning himself a month-long loan at Chesterfield in November 2019.

Following his Wednesday debut off the bench against QPR in July 2020, a first start would come 11 days later against Middlesbrough on the final day of the 2019/20 campaign.

The season after, Shaw became a more established figure in the first team and managed 22 appearances in all competitions for the South Yorkshire outfit, his first professional goal coming in a 2-1 home win over Middlesbrough in December 2020.

It was during the summer of 2021 that the Sheffield-born man opted to make the move from his boyhood club and join Scottish giants Celtic on a four-year deal.

The youngster’s debut for the Hoops came in a 3-2 Europa League Group Stage win over Spanish side Real Betis, with Shaw enjoying 65 minutes of gametime on the European stage.

13 days later and the 6ft 2 man made his Scottish Premiership bow, in a 0-0 draw with St Mirren, before joining Motherwell for the remainder of the 2021/22 season a month later.

Shaw has experience across a number of positions, including centre-back, defensive-midfield, central midfield and attacking midfield, where he has played a total of 42 professional games, racking up a total of 2,213 minutes of professional football.

Throughout the duration of his stay at the Mazuma Stadium, Shaw will wear the number 20.
