Celtic loanee Jack Hendry has discussed the knee injury that his him currently out of action, the Daily Record reports.

The centre-back suffered a severe injury in the dying seconds of only his second game for Melbourne City. Hendry has disclosed that he could tell that he had suffered a bad injury as soon as the incident happened.

“My knee went one way and my body went the other. I heard the pop and I knew right away” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

Hendry has admitted that he is unsure if he will play for Melbourne City again, as the Australian authorities rush to get the football season completed.

“Thrown into doubt”

“Two days after that I had my surgery, and they were hoping to get me back for the end of the season and hopefully the play-offs. That, however, looks to be thrown into doubt…they are trying to squeeze games into a short space of time to get the season over quicker” he said.

It is a real shame for Hendry that his loan move has been ruined due to injury. He would have been hoping to get his career back on track after a spell of having very few games for Celtic.

May return to club sooner than later

Now that is highly unlikely to happen, as Australia looks to get the season finished as soon as it can. That might mean that Hendry returns to Glasgow and to Celtic sooner rather than later.

Only time will tell what happens with the rest of his Hoops career, as football is currently on lockdown. However, when things are back to normal, you imagine that he will have talks with Neil Lennon about the future of his career with Celtic.
