After the news Ryan Christie will be out for the rest of the season another Celtic player has joined him in having his season cut short due to injury.
It won’t affect the Celtic starting XI but it’s horrible news for defender Jack Hendry as Neil Lennon confirms the player has torn his hamstring in a reserve game during the week.
Hendry played the first half of Celtic’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to The Rangers reserves on Monday with the defender coming off shortly after the second half kicked off with the injury.
When asked about the current state of the squad, Neil Lennon confirmed Hendry would be playing no further part in the season for the first team or the reserves.
“Jack Hendry, he tore his hamstring in a reserve game on Monday so the prognosis is he’ll be out for the rest of the season” Lennon told CelticTV.
Jack has had a torrid time trying to break through to the first team with many underwhelming performances so far in his short Celtic career. When he gets back to full fitness next season will be pivotal for the defender. If he can’t get into the team pre-season and beyond then the player might have to look elsewhere to get first team football.
The plan seemed to be loaning Jack out in January but injuries to key defenders in January meant manager at the time Brendan Rodgers didn’t want to let him go.
