“…not good enough”, “give him away” – Some Celtic fans react as £900k man is linked with exit

Jack Hendry hasn’t played in the Scottish Premiership under Neil Lennon and the Celtic man, according to reports, is reportedly wanted by Blackpool, Lincoln City and Bolton Wanderers.

Following the report, some Celtic fans have made it clear that they would be very pleased to see the centre-back shown the exit door at Celtic Park in the ongoing January transfer window.

With the transfer window now on its full wings, the Daily Record claims that the defender is on the books of League One clubs Blackpool and Lincoln City. The duo have been monitoring Hendry’s progress at Celtic, with the player keen on getting more regular first-team football.

Both Blackpool and Lincoln want to sign Hendry till the end of the season. But same cannot be said of Bolton Wanderers who are also interested in his services, has it may be tough to sign him with them at the bottom of League One amid all the financial issues they had, as highlighted in the report.

Hendry, who is rated £900,000 by Transfermarkt, has been an out of favour at the club this season under Neil Lennon, with the defender registering just one appearance in competitions so far.

Hendry’s current situation at the club is a fall from grace since last season where he registered 15 appearances in all competitions for the club, with only four of them coming in the Premiership. The defender also played four times in the qualifying stages of the UEFA Champions League, and two appearances to his in the Europa League.

Hendry has previously played in England, with six appearances to his name for Shrewsbury Town, he also registered 12 appearances for MK Dons. And three appearances for Wigan Athletic.

At 24-year-old, there’s still a lot of football left in him I see no reason why he should be down the pecking order under Lennon.

While he cannot afford to risk his development and allow his bright career to be stagnate, I would reckon a move away from Celtic Park will suite both party and going back to the League One will be a very good escape route for Hendry since he’s been there in the past too.

Indeed, it would appear some Celtic fans are glad about these links and would be happy to see the 24-year-old leave the club.
