Third time lucky for £1m Celtic player as chances of playing v Dundee look very likely
Celtic’s recent signing Jack Hendry will be playing with a point to prove if he starts for the Hoops against Dundee on Wednesday night.
The 22-year-old, who joined the Hoops from Dundee in January for a fee of £1million, has started two games for the Bhoys, neither of which they have won.
He could be out to make it third time lucky if he replaces Kristoffer Ajer, who is a doubt for the game, as reported by BBC Sport, because of the eye injury he suffered against Aberdeen on Sunday.
If Hendry plays against the Dens Park side, he will be out to prove a point not only to his old team that he was correct to leave them, but to Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers that he should be a regular starter in the first team.
With Ajer possibly out, Dedryck Boayta still injured, Jozo Simunovic struggling with his form and Marvin Compper making his first tentative steps towards the Hoops first team, the centre-back places are currently up for grabs.
The Bhoys don’t usually spend upwards of £1million on a player unless they really rate him, and Hendry has the chance to show why he was signed on a regular basis, if he impresses against his former team.
