The 21-year-old has spent the last few days training with the Scottish champions so that Bhoys goalkeeping coach Terry Gennoe can have a look at him.
Shearer is regarded as one of the most promising prospects in Scotland and has enjoyed trials at Everton and Bolton.
Shearer has impressed at the Third Division outfit and his performances for The Wee Rovers have attracted a great deal of interest.
Bhoys boss Martin O'Neill is keen to strengthen his goalkeeping options with Jonathan Gould expected to move on at the end of the season and doubts surrounding the future of Rab Douglas.
Shearer is expected to return to Parkhead for a longer trial later in the year in the hope of winning a permanent move to Glasgow.
"I'll have a chat with Terry over the next week or so and we'll take it from there, but certainly at the minute we have a lot of good up and coming young keepers," O'Neill told the club's official website.
