Former Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson entered the game against Juventus with just over ten minutes remaining on Monday night during Empoli’s 4-1 win over the Italian giants and was caught on camera teasing one of his opponents, Dusan Vlahovic.

The towering Serbian had a rather subdued evening but has been linked with an £80 million move away from Juventus.

As can be seen below, the former Celtic player humorously references this price tag to Vlahovic following a lacklustre performance from him. Some quintessential Scottish humour has been put to good use here.

Vlahovic may not even speak English and thus understand what Henderson is saying, but let’s hope he does and did.

Liam Henderson, a product of the Celtic Academy, has carved out an impressive career for himself since leaving his boyhood club. Before making the move to Italy, Henderson had a successful loan spell at Hibernian, where he made a significant impact.

His time at Hibs is fondly remembered, particularly for his role in the club’s historic Scottish Cup final victory. In a match that is still talked about today, Henderson and his Hibs teammates triumphed over the Ibrox club, bringing the coveted trophy to Easter Road.
