Low-key Celtic arrival can show what he is made of on big stage
Of all Celtic’s signings in the January transfer window, perhaps the most low-key of them all has been Jack Hendry, who was signed from Dundee for £1million.
As yet it is hard to know who good a player the 22-year-old is, as he has been in and out of the first-team since arriving at the club.
He also has the unique distinction of not having won any of the three games he has started so far for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Fans may get a better idea of how good a player Hendry is when he makes his international debut for Scotland against Hungary on Tuesday night, as BBC Sport has reported that he is set to start the game and shine on the big stage.
If Hendry is able to thrive at international level, it could give Rodgers food for thought going into the Champions League qualifiers in July.

It is unlikely the supporters will get to see the best of Hendry until next season, as Rodgers strives for his best central defensive partnership and because the player is ineligible for the biggest game left for the Hoops this season – the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers.
Hendry can only try his best when given the chance for both and country right now, and a good performance for the national team could prove to be a sign that the player will make it at Celtic Park.
