Celtic midfielder Liam Shaw is already earning early praise from the coaching staff at Motherwell after recently completing a loan move to the Fir Park side until the end of the season.

The 20-year old joined the Hoops in the summer on a pre-contract deal from then English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday but has found game time hard to come by in the first half of the season.

In order to gain some experience, Shaw was sent out on loan to Scottish Premiership side Motherwell, and he appears to already be catching the eye of Well assistant boss Keith Lasley, who had some early praise for the Englishman.

“Liam’s in training with us, and he has been for a few days now. He looks a good athlete, and he looks technically good,” Lasley said, speaking to the Daily Record.

“You can see why he’s been highly thought of down at Sheffield Wednesday, and you can see why Celtic have brought him up.

“Hopefully, he makes an impact in the second half of the season. He looks a good player, and I am looking forward to seeing him in action.”

It is great to hear that Shaw is looking to make an impact in the early stages of his loan spell at Fir Park, ahead of the Scottish Premiership return against Ross County on Tuesday.

Many supporters have credited this as a good move for the youngster, who can hopefully earn some good experience and game time under Graham Alexander in the second half of the campaign.
