22-year-old has it all to prove at Celtic after yet another below-par performance

COMMENT

Celtic’s January signings, apart from Scott Bain, have yet to pull up any trees for the club, with Charly Musonda and Marvin Compper rarely featuring, and Jack Hendry yet to impress in any of performances for the Hoops.

The 22-year-old, who signed for £1million from Dundee, has started four games for the Hoops and they are yet to win any of them, and this pattern continued in the 2-1 loss to Hibernian at Easter Road.

Of course you can’t blame Hendry for that, it is just one of the strange quirks of football, but his performances in these games have not been up to the standard you would expect of a Hoops defender.

In Hendry’s defence, he has often been played on the right-side of a back three, or even put at right-back in an emergency situation, which doesn’t suit the player at all.

When he done well at Dundee, he was playing as a centre-back, and if he is to establish himself in the Hoops team that is where he must play for the Bhoys.

Brendan Rodgers is obviously a big fan of the player, and there is every chance he will be involved in the Champions League qualifiers that begin in July.

But if Hendry wants to make it with the Scottish champions, he will need to improve his performances quickly.
