Former Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson has wasted no time in making an impression for new side Hellas Verona, creating a wonderful assist for his teammate to score in a Coppa Italia match against Juve Stabia.
The one time Hoops prospect has joined Verona from fellow Serie B side Bari, whose financial difficulties meant he had to make a switch despite an impressing upon his arrival from Glasgow in January.
Hovering in space outside the box, he received the ball and flicked a deft pass into the path of his teammate to contribute to the 4-1 victory on Sunday night, which you can see below.

Still just 22 years of age, he has every chance of playing at a high level for the majority of his career, especially since his new side will be targeting immediate promotion after their relegation from Serie A last summer.
He never quite made the grade at Celtic, despite a famous goal in a title-wining performance against Partick Thistle, but he was always popular with supporters and it’s great to see him settle in well for his new club.
