Celtic complete signing of Dundee duo Hendry and Bain

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon

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.
