Neil Lennon was asked about the return of Ewan Henderson during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
The bhoys are all set to play Ross County at Celtic Park tomorrow but it emerged earlier in Friday that Celtic had recalled Ewan from his loan at County.
The midfielder wasn’t getting enough game time, prompting Celtic to bring the player back into the fold.
Neil Lennon confirmed the player cant go out on loan again this month and will remain at Celtic for the rest of the season.
🗣️ NL on Ewan Henderson: "He’s played for us in a qualifier so he’ll be around the first-team training, we can’t loan him out to another club. We would’ve liked him to play more games but it’s good to see him back and he enjoyed his experience."
More from the boss soon 🖥️

Henderson could play a part in Celtic’s season. He has shown in the past he’s good enough to hang with this current crop of players.
With Christie still suspended, there’s a chance Ewan could make the squad against County on Saturday.
Celtic are looking to go five points clear at the top with a win over Ewan’s old loan side on Saturday. The more pressure on our rivals, the better.
