Celtic fans react as Jack Hendry seals deadline day switch to Parkhead
Celtic fans have taken to social media to praise the arrival on new signing Jack Hendry from Dundee.
The 22-year-old finally joined the Hoops on a four-and-a-half year contract just before the transfer window closed, thus ending a protracted saga that had been going on for months.
The former Wigan player becomes the Hoops’ fifth signing of the January window, joining Scott Bain, Marvin Compper, Lewis Morgan and Charly Musonda.
Supporters seem pleased that Brendan Rodgers finally managed to sign a player that he has long admired, and who has been receiving rave reviews at Dundee.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter as Hendry completed his move to the Scottish champions:
Jack Hendry is older than 7 of the players who played against Hearts on tuesday dnt get the 'one for the future' tag some have put on him I think hes ready now???????? watched the lad at dundee a few times this season & he is a player, a proper modern day centre half ????????

Have a good feeling about Jack Hendry at Celtic tbh. By all accounts, he's a solid defender who is composed on and off the ball and that's basically the profile which Rodgers looks for in a centre half given we have a specific way of playing football.

Congrats and welcome, mate. It's easy, only thing we expect you to do is lift the Ten and a couple trebles on the way.

Hendry now faces a fight to get into the Hoops’ first-team, as the Bhoys currently have five centre-backs in their squad as no major players left the club during the January window.
The new man could make his debut on Saturday, when the Bhoys head to Kilmarnock as they aim to keep their 11 point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
The Bhoys go into the game on the back of a comfortable 3-1 win over Hearts at Celtic Park on Tuesday, the goals scored by Edouard, Boyata and Dembele.
