Rodgers made one of his worst Celtic decisions by offloading midfielder


One player who left recently seems to committed to proving that Celtic were wrong to let him go is midfielder Liam Henderson.

Henderson, 21, surprised a lot of people by moving to Italian promotion contenders Bari – they are currently fifth in Serie B – and he has done well for his new club so far, recently scoring for the second time for them against Salernitana, which the club’s official Twitter was delighted about.

Henderson might not have been getting much of a look-in at Celtic Park this season, as he had to compete with the likes of Callum McGregor and Stuart Armstrong for a place in the side.

But it is still a bit of a shock that Brendan Rodgers sanctioned his departure, when you consider some of the less than impressive midfield performances turned in by some Hoops players this season.

Henderson would have been a very useful player for the Hoops to have had on their side against Dundee on Wednesday night when the team spluttered to a goalless draw.

His box to box midfield running and expert delivery from set-pieces could well have made the difference between a win and a draw on the night.

One thing to consider for the future is that if Henderson manages to make a good fist of it in Italy, the Hoops might try and sign him again in the future. Stranger things have happened in the East End of Glasgow.
