The Brewers secured Liam's services for a club record fee from SPL side Ross County following a goal laden two year spell in the SPL that saw him score 48 goals in 99 appearances for the Staggies and finish last season as the top scorer in the Scottish top flight with 23 goals.
Belfast-born Liam began his career with Cliftonville scoring 19 times in his first full campaign. His goalscoring exploits earned him the Northern Ireland Football Writer's Player Of The Year Award in 2010. After a trial with Celtic it was Bundesliga side Werder Bremen that took a chance on Liam's golascoring ability but after three games for their second string and he returned to his former club to regain his form.
In 2012/13 he scored 29 times as Cliftonville won the league title for the first time since 1998 and the title was retained the following year with Liam adding a further 21 goals. After signing a pre-contract agreement with Ross County Liam began to make his mark in Scotland.
He added the Scottish League Cup to his collection of winner's medals and improving his goalscoring record in each of his three seasons north of the border. Liam has now been recognised by Northern Ireland and he netted his first international goal in June in a friendly victory over New Zealand.
