On-loan Celtic centre-half has made an impressive debut as he embarks on a new adventure in Australia with the 24-year-old earning a place in the A-League team of the week according to The Scottish Sun.

Hendry had featured for just 11 minutes of first team action for Neil Lennon’s men this season and had been linked with a move to Hearts prior to his move to Melbourne City.

Melbourne coach Erick Mombaerts said of Hendry’s debut:

“It’s a very good start – a good start against Perth, a clean sheet and we were strong. I’m sure we will be better in the future.”

Celtic will be hoping that the Scotland international continues to impress with two and a half years still to run on his contract and being deemed surplus to requirements, they will be hoping that they can secure a permanent exit for him in the summer and recoup some of the £1.5m that Brendan Rodgers paid in January 2018 to sign him from Dundee.

Hendry will still have ambitions of a return to the national team and although he may not get the call if he is playing well in the A-League, a new start in British football playing regularly and back in form could see him earn a recall to Steve Clarke’s squad.

Will Jack Hendry play for Celtic again?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It has been a positive start for Hendry but he needs to maintain it if he is to secure a decent move on his return to Parkhead in the summer as it is clear that Lennon doesn’t rate the towering defender.
