Some Celtic fans have been cracking jokes after the club’s latest post about donating to the Australian Red Cross to address the crisis caused by months of devastating bushfires across Eastern Australia, which is obviously a great cause.
The Hoops have already allowed defender Jack Hendry to join Australian club Melbourne City FC, with the centre-half now on loan at the A-League club.
Should the club pay to sell Hendry?
Surely, he's useless
He can do a job for us
But recently, the Celtic Twitter handle posted about the club donating funds to address the bushfire crisis in Australia. And this has sparked a humorous reaction from some Hoops fans.
? @FoundationCFC have made a £5k donation to the Australian Red Cross, to help towards addressing the crisis caused by months of devastating bushfires across Eastern Australia.

probably best to send them another £5k to counter act sending them Jack Hendry

Just wondering was this included in the jack Henry loan deal?

As for Hendry, the defender has joined the club from Dundee in the winter of 2018, having signed on an undisclosed fee from the then Premiership side. In the 2017-18 campaign, Hendry made 12 appearances in all competitions for the Hoops. He was a regular for them in the second half of the campaign.
What do we think?
The club is doing a good thing in donating to a good cause. The Hoops fans do have a good reason to poke fun at it, but acts like these go a long way in ensuring the goodwill of the club. It enhances their global identity too.
