The Milton Keynes born midfielder began his senior career in Scotland with SPL outfit Kilmarnock, in which he made over 100 appearances during a four-year stay with the club.

After a spell at Bristol City, the 27-year old transferred to Oldham Athletic and then Leyton Orient, captaining both sides.

Kelly has also made one appearance for Scotland, making his debut in a friendly against Luxemborg in 2012, coming on as a substitute for Charlie Mulgrew in a 2-1 victory. 

Liam joined the Sky Blues from Leyton Orient, following the end of his deal.

Kelly formed a partnership in midfield alongside captain Michael Doyle, and the duo quickly became part of a popular fan chant.

The midfielder suffered an injury over the festive period, but he quickly returned and become a key player in the Sky Blues securing promotion back into League One.

Unfortunately, injury struck again and Kelly missed the opening months of the new season, returning to the starting eleven on a regular basis towards the end of the year.

Then, following the dpearture of Michael Doyle, Kelly was named club captain in February of 2019.

Kelly resumed his time as club captain the following season and with a young side around him, the midfielder became one of the more experience players in the side, using that to guide the younger players around him.

That guidance proved vital and the midfielder would captain the Sky Blues back to the Championship and to the League One title in the process.
