Celtic lost their clean sheet streak today at Rugby Park as Craig Gordon took the ball out of the net twice. Fans were only complimenting how stable the Celtic defence has looked with Boyata, Ajer and Benkovic in the side.
Step forward Jack Hendry.
Unfortunately, Filip Benkovic got injured in today’s warm up which say Hendry drafted into the back four. Some Celtic fans were feeling uneasy with the change before the whistle went, but, they are calling out Hendry after the hoops lost a 5 game streak of clean sheets.
5 clean sheets….step forward jack hendry….it canny be a coincidence 🙈 he’s just shite!

See the Jack Hendry stats about never winning when he starts. Coincidence or not, genuinely get him to fuck because of it. No fucking about, pay off his contract the noo.

Wish Jack Hendry was my boyfriend, I’d keep him off that bastarding pitch which is a win win for everyone I think

Jack Hendry and that fucking horrendous kit are cursed. Never win when he’s playing or if we play in that kit…

I have don't believe in the Jack Hendry curse.
I do believe he's nowhere near good enough and will continually cost us goals.

In fairness, Celtic have yet to set the world alight this season. There is a spark, passion and flow that has been present for the last two seasons. Celtic have lost Stuart Armstrong, Roberts and Moussa Dembele but their should be enough invincibles left in the squad to be giving the likes of Saint Mirren and Kilmarnock a much tougher test.
Games are coming thick and fast, hopefully Celtic can find some of that invincibles form very quickly. It might be unfair to single out Hendry when other players seem to be going through the motions, all the way up to record signings.
