Video – Liam Shaw talks about joining Wigan Athletic on a season long loan from Celtic

As we reported earlier in the week Celtic midfielder Liam Shaw – who appears to be surplus to requirements at Parkhead – has today joined Wigan Athletic, managed of course by former Celtic winger Shaun Maloney, on a season long loan deal.

Liam Shaw and Shaun Maloney both outlined their thoughts on the move via the official Wigan Athletic website.

Liam Shaw said: “I’m really happy to be here. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone, getting to know the boys, and getting to business. It’s a massive Club, and when I spoke to the Manager, I really bought into his vision and I can’t wait to get started!”

Wigan’s First-Team Manager, Shaun Maloney added: “I’m really happy that Liam has joined the Football Club. I have to thank Celtic who pushed hard with us to get this deal done quickly.

“Liam can play many different positions – as a defensive and attacking midfielder – and he started off at centre back at Sheffield Wednesday.

“He’s a really good player and now our squad is really starting to take shape. He’s a great character and brings a different profile physically so I’m glad Liam has joined us for the season, and I hope he’s ready to fight for our cause.”

Celtic also confirmed that the deal had gone through earlier today, wishes the player good luck for the season ahead via the club’s social media channels.

Best of luck to Liam at Wigan and he’ sure to enjoy working under Shaun Maloney, who will improve his game.
