Celtic flop and Everton full-back Jonjoe Kenny has stated that his spell in Glasgow was the most challenging moment of his career, after spending the last six months of last season on loan with the club.

After both Jeremie Frimpong and Hatem Elhamed departed the club late in January, Kenny was the only signing of the winter window to be brought in by Neil Lennon.

It would be fair to say, like many of the signings last season; the 24-year olds spell with the Hoops didn’t go to plan, with some frustrating performances in the side.

Speaking to Transfermarkt, the right-back opened up on his time with the club last campaign, admitting that after a good spell in Germany with Schalke, his time with Celtic was one of the most difficult points in his career.

“This was really the most difficult moment of my career so far.

“I left Schalke on a high and felt ready to play for Everton. But unfortunately, it didn’t turn out that way, and it wasn’t easy for me to deal with.

“I went to Celtic, another club with great history, success and an absolute winning mentality.

“The Old Firm derbies were difficult because they took place without fans. But that experience was also good for my development, I think.”

Kenny now finds himself on the bench for Everton in the English Premier League, with the side struggling for form under new boss Rafa Benitez.

Ultimately, his time with the Hoops will quickly be forgotten due to the disastrous season we suffered last campaign, which is not something many fans will be keen to remember.

Especially the performances put in the majority of Glasgow derby fixtures that the loanee featured in the second half of the season.
