Celtic complete signing of Dundee duo Hendry and Bain

Leigh Griffiths of Celtic celebrates after he scores his team's second goal during the Scottish Premier League match between Dundee and Celtic at Dens Park

I went to Chelsea at 15 so it takes many years.

"I am at one now, I am lucky to be here and happy to have the opportunity to be at a big club like Celtic at 21 and to be able to play here is a dream. I didn't expect the supporters to be so loud in my first game - although I've been told it will get louder - but it was an unbelievable experience for me". After being banished from the Dundee first team following a fall-out with manager Neil McCann at the end of October, the 26-year-old joined Hibs on loan on New Year's Day.

But Brendan Rodgers is a huge fan of Hendry and is now to have instructed Celtic's hierarchy not to miss out on the player, that he believes can be a real star. He is expected to join the Ibrox club's Academy, whose head Craig Mulholland, said: "Glenn is a player that we have tracked for some time both at Norwich and with Scotland".

He said: "It was wonderful to play in front of the fans at Celtic Park". I am still very young.


The young defender has been on Rodgers' radar for sometime and Celtic already had a bid rejected earlier this month. "I knew even then how big Celtic is and I enjoyed watching the game", he said.

"Joining the Scottish champions is a brilliant move for me".

'Without having the step I had this season at Chelsea I wouldn't be here.

"There were a lot of things going on last summer which stopped me. There's no better fit for me". I'm here to play regularly but I also want to win and we are still in the Europa League.
Hopefully, we can go far in that as well.
