Celtic youngster Ewan Henderson is taking inspiration from brother Liam’s adventure in Italian football, The Scottish Sun report.

The older sibling is forging a path for Scottish player in Serie A this season with Hellas Verona after helping them to promotion last season.

Ewan meanwhile continues to develop his skills on loan at Ross County, hoping to one day make a big impact in the Celtic first-team.

The two players remain close despite playing in different countries, with the teenager revealing he continues to learn and seek help from his brother on a daily basis.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said: “I talk him to every day on FaceTime and I text him a lot too. I am just so proud of him. He learns every day on the pitch but is learning a lot off it too.

“I got over in the last international break to see him. It was great to see the place although I didn’t get to watch a game.

“There aren’t many boys from Scotland who have gone over and done what he’s done. It shows it’s possible for Scottish players to try things like that. He’s always watching me and giving me advice — he’s been a massive help to my career.”

How is Henderson progressing at Ross County?

The 19-year-old moved to the Scottish Premiership on loan at the end of the summer transfer window, with opportunities of first-team football at Celtic slim.

Since then he’s started three matches for the club, helping them to two wins and a draw. Benched for another match against St Johnstone and being unable to play against Celtic, he’ll be hoping to win a way back into the team against Hibs on Saturday.

As we witnessed last season he has significant potential, creating three assists in four Scottish Premiership matches.

He remains a player we should have high hopes for and it’ll be interesting to see what his form for County is like over the next few months.
