Liam, 22, recently opened up about his first match as part of GB's senior ice hockey side to The Sun, joking: "My dad was at the Celtic game at Hampden on Sunday – I saw him on the TV and it looked like he was enjoying what was a big win for them… When it comes down to watching Celtic or watching me I'm pretty sure he's going to pick Celtic most times, but I won't hold that against him, especially given the way they are playing at the moment! I'm still working on trying to convert him to hockey, he was at a club game to see me playing for Coventry earlier in the season and it would be nice to see him watch me play for GB."
