Celtic: Liam Shaw not considered a first-team option

Celtic: Liam Shaw not considered a first-team option -Celtic

Celtic summer signing Liam Shaw isn’t considered a first-team option at Parkhead yet, according to The Athletic’s Kieran Devlin.

The Lowdown: Urhoghide’s struggles

Shaw was followed to Celtic Park from Sheffield Wednesday by centre-back Osaze Urhoghide.

The 20-year-old cost less than Shaw at a price of £207,000 and is yet to feature in a competitive match under Ange Postecoglou.

Devlin suggested that Urhoghide has not impressed in training, with 18-year-olds Dane Murray and Bosun Lawal potentially ahead of him in terms of his development.

The Latest: Shaw claim

In Devlin’s story assessing the club’s summer window, he also made a claim about Shaw, who is also yet to make a first-team appearance this season.

It seems as if the defensive midfielder, who can also play as a centre-back, is also failing to catch the eye, as, internally, he isn’t considered a first-team option at this moment in time.

The Verdict: Patience required

Neil Lennon was the man in charge when Celtic secured Shaw’s services, and like Urhoghide, the Hoops pipped Premier League competition for his signature.

Parkhead chiefs may not have expected the duo to be first-team regulars straight away, so the Hoops will have to be patient when it comes to their development.

Shaw, who made 24 senior appearances for Sheffield Wednesday, could still be adjusting to life in Scotland, and hopefully, over time, will start to catch Postecoglou’s eye at Lennoxtown.
