John Kennedy: I’m excited about Liam Shaw joining Celtic – he can shine just like Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull


CELTC assistant manager John Kennedy has admitted he is excited about the prospect of Liam Shaw joining from Sheffield Wednesday in the summer – and tipped him to flourish just like Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull.

Parkhead boss Neil Lennon revealed this week that versatile English defender cum midfielder Shaw has been signed on a pre-contract agreement and will move to Glasgow at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Kennedy confirmed the quadruple treble winners have been monitoring the progress of the promising 19-year-old, who has been a regular starter in the Championship down south this term, for some time.

The former Scotland centre half is looking forward to working with the and is hopeful he can emulate Soro and Turnbull, who have broken through at Celtic this season and become key men for Lennon.

“Liam has been tracked and monitored for a little while now,” he said. “We knew his situation at Sheffield Wednesday and we are excited by him.

“He is young, athletic and has good qualities. He can play midfield and at the back, and is one for the future.

“We see him having a career in the game here and we think he develop like Turnbull and Soro have.”
