Soon-to-be Celtic player Liam Shaw has been warned about a potential lack of opportunities at the Parkhead side by old boss Tony Pulis.

The midfielder will officially sign for the club in the summer after agreeing a pre-contract earlier in January under Neil Lennon.

The young Englishman was given his debut by the veteran manager and a subsequent run of games - but has barely featured since the move was agreed.

HeraldScotland:

Speaking to The Athletic, former Stoke and Sheffield Wednesday gaffer Pulis had a message for the youngster. He said: "The big thing with him, more than anything, is obviously experience and games.

"I personally think that for what they’re paying it’s a great signing for the football club.

"It’s just where Celtic go now, whether they’ll go and strengthen in that area with the new manager, and what that might mean for Shaw’s opportunities next season."

Pulis used Shaw at centre-back predominantly but in recent times the player has featured in midfield more often.

Pulis continued: “He can play in various positions, very versatile — (he’s) good in that respect.

“Technically, for being such a big lad, he is a very good passer of the ball. Just a great person, with a fabulous attitude towards wanting to learn and work
