Williams On Trial At Celtic

Sporting Fingal star Shaun Williams is currently on trial with Scottish giants Celtic, as he seeks to sort out his future.

 The 24 year old had widely impressed scouts from the Glasgow club during the 2010 Airtricity League season and manager Neil Lennon was keen to invite the versatile midfielder over. The Celtic manager is currently running the rule over Williams at Lennoxtown, ahead of the Hoops weekend clash with Hibernian.

 Williams, has also had interest from England, with Coventry City and Crystal Palace both keeping tabs on the 2010 PFAI young player of the year. Shamrock Rovers have also been keeping an eye on his availability. He was due to fly out to Norway with the rest of the PFAI squad this week but the offer of earning a contract with his boyhood club was too good to refuse.

 Should the Portmarnock native earn a deal with the SPL side he will join former League of Ireland stars Paddy McCourt and Niall McGinn at Parkhead. McCourt made the move to Parkhead in 2008 from Derry City while fellow Northern Ireland international McGinn followed suit a year later.
