Charlie Shaw

Celtic hero Charlie Shaw was born in Twechar, Scotland on 21 September 1885. Died 27 March 1938, aged 52

Shaw made his debut for the Bhoys in a 2-1 Glasgow Charity Cup win at Third Lanark on May 6 1913 and it did not take long for the wonderfully gifted keeper to win a place in the hearts of the Celtic support.

With the fragile looking Shaw in goals Celtic’s defensive record improved dramatically as their brave and athletic keeper pulled off one breathtakingly sublime save after another. But Shaw also had the intelligence to match his athleticism. As a measure of his ability, in the 1913/14 season remarkably he lost only 14 goals in 38 games with 26 shut-outs along the away. A record for Celtic to this day.
