Liam Henderson, the midfielder who came up through the youth ranks at Celtic, was sold for just £120k to Bari in January.

However, his value has skyrocketed in the past five months and, according to the Daily Record, Parma have now placed a £1million for the player.

Henderson made 37 appearances for Celtic and 48 for Hibs on loan. He also enjoyed a loan spell at Rosenborg where he won the title and the Norwegian cup, to go with the two Scottish title and four Scottish cup medals.

It seems now that Brendan Rodgers made a fairly sizeable clanger when he let him leave so cheaply.

He might not have been near the Celtic first team and a move probably suited both parties, but there’s a huge difference between £120k and £1million and Celtic have to wring every but of value from their departing players.

Henderson has played a big part in Bari making the play-offs and they hope to get promoted.

However, even if they don’t it looks like Henderson could be the first Scottish player to play in Serie A since Graeme Souness with Sampdoria in 1986.

Watching his ascension will be painful for Celtic at a time when they could do with every penny they can get for new transfers.
