A product of the Salgaocar Academy, Liston dominated the U18 AIFF Youth League and the Goa League scoring numerous goals. His goal-scoring prowess and performances in the Santosh Trophy for the state team caught the eye of the FC Goa scouts who drafted him into the reserve side. Liston made progress to the first team and featured for the Gaurs in three ISL seasons as a fringe player. His talent was known by the management at Hyderabad who captured the player’s signature in January 2020 as he was transferred to the league’s newest team. At Hyderabad, Liston immediately became an influential player, scored his first goal in the ISL, and was even called up to the national team camp in March.
