Yorkshire Live have confirmed that nothing has changed in regards to Liam Shaw’s move to Celtic despite the sacking of Neil Lennon.
The Owls Academy graduate signed a pre-contract agreement with the Scottish champions earlier this month following weeks of talks, although that move has been thrown into some doubt after Lennon was relieved of his duties at Celtic Park – with the Hoops 18 points behind rivals Rangers.
However, despite Lennon’s expected departure, Dom Howson revealed that the situation remains the same, meaning Shaw’s move to Celtic is still set to go through at the end of the campaign.
Shaw won’t be available to feature in Wednesday’s trip to Brentford tonight after the teenager was sent off during Saturday’s defeat to Birmingham City, meaning he begins a two-match suspension.
Quiz: Did these 15 former Sheffield Wednesday players leave for a higher or lower fee than they arrived for?
The defender will also miss the Owls’ trip to Luton on the weekend, although he’ll be available for selection for Wednesday’s crucial six-point against Yorkshire rivals Rotherham next Wednesday.
But here, we’ve been looking at how the Hillsborough faithful have been reacting to the news that Shaw’s move to Celtic is still expected to happen:
His career will flop just like Hirst and Clare, cya

As I said at the time, Celtic is not the lure it once was. They are rudderless, lacking in quality and are is as much turmoil as us right now. Don't see why anyone would want to join them right now. Same logic for players coming to us in that respect.

Why would it change? He signed a contract to play for Celtic, not Neil Lennon. Do you honestly think it was Neil Lennon that signed Shaw? He’d probably never heard of the kid until 3 weeks ago.

Could he still decide to back out of it of he wanted to though? Not suggesting he will, but wondering if survival this season and Lennon going might even possibly change his mind.
