Many Celtic fans have been left angry by Jack Hendry’ performance for Scotland against Austria.

Scotland had recently played Austria in the World Cup qualifying stages and as a result of McGinn’s late goal, Steve Clarke’s men salvaged a 2-2 draw.

In the game, Hendry had started at right centre-back in Scotland’s 3-4-2-1 system alongside Grant Hanley and Kieran Tierney (as per WhoScored).

Does Hendry have a future at Celtic?





The Celtic man’s performance drew the attention of a lot of Hoops supporters, who weren’t happy with how he played.

What did Celtic fans make of Hendry’s performance?

Hendry is currently on loan at Oostende, where he’s become a regular part of the Belgian club’s first team. In 24 first-team appearances for the side, he’s also scored two goals and he has one assist while regularly playing at centre-back.

How much do you think members of the Bhoys' squad are worth according to Transfermarkt? Starting with an easy one how much do you think Odsonne Edouard is worth?

At Celtic, he has only made a total of 27 appearances, while in the 2019/20 season, he didn’t play once in the under Neil Lennon.

“Iv not made my call on that header alone. I’ve seen him years before he signed for Celtic. He’s not good enough to improve Celtic. These views are subjective but we need significantly better players that Hendry.

“Having watched the Scotland game I have not changed my mind one bit……. if Celtic get offered any sort of money for Jack Hendry they should take it and run!!!

A lot of these Celtic fans weren’t happy with Hendry’s performance and some of them don’t want him to play for the Bhoys when he returns from his spell.

The £1.44m-rated defender picked up a rating of only 6.68/10 against Austria (as per WhoScored), which shows that the performance wasn’t exceptional. But the Hoops have already lost Hatem Abd Elhamed, while Shane Duffy returns to Brighton at the end of the season. Kristoffer Ajer may also leave if links with Milan re-emerge this summer.

So if Celtic lose too many centre-backs, they might have to keep Hendry as a squad option for next season.
