Jack Hendry says he is looking forward to improving as a player after leaving Dundee FC for Celtic on transfer deadline day.
Hendry signed a a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Hoops late on Wednesday, and will join up with former Dens team-mate Scott Bain who also heads to Celtic Park on a loan deal.
Speaking to the Celtic website, Hendry said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Celtic. Joining the Scottish champions is a brilliant move for me. I know, from playing against Celtic this season, the quality of players that are at the club and I can’t wait to start training with my new team-mates.
“I also know that working with Brendan Rodgers and the rest of the coaching staff here will improve me as a player and I’m looking forward to working hard every day to repay the faith they’ve shown in signing me.
“I’ve already experienced playing at Celtic Park as an opposition player, but I can’t wait to run out wearing the Celtic jersey and play in front of the Celtic supporters.”
Bain said: “This is biggest club in Scotland and one of the biggest clubs in the world, so I just can’t believe that I’m here.
“I phoned my dad earlier today just to say that I was leaving Easter Road and on the road to Glasgow, and he was buzzing and delighted for me. I can’t believe I was on the bench for Hibs against Celtic last weekend and then, just a few days later, I’m signing for Celtic.
“It’s not something that, when I went on loan to Hibs, I thought was ever going to happen, so the past few days have been great, and to get it over the line and be here is absolutely amazing.”
