The latest episode in a dramatic season has seen midfield prospect Liam Shaw agree a pre-contract with Celtic which will see him leave his boyhood club when his current contract expires in July.

It’s a move which, unsurprisingly, has provoked strong emotions among Wednesdayites amid fears other young talent such as Osaze Urhoghide could follow him out of the Hillsborough exit door this summer.

We’ll continue to analyse Shaw’s move and look at what it means for the club while on the pitch caretaker manager Neil Thompson is currently busy preparing his squad for Saturday’s huge relegation six-pointer with Birmingham City at S6.
