Some Celtic fans have been reacting as Jack Hendry gets set to move on loan to Australian side Melbourne City.

The Brendan Rodgers signing has played 12 minutes for the first-team all season but now looks set to jet down under for a temporary move to the A-League.

STV reporter Raman Bhardwaj says the defender will fly to Australia in the next 48 hours to put the finishing touches on a “short term loan deal.

And, just a week after reports of Lewis Morgan moving to Inter Miami emerged, some Celtic fans are more than a little bit jealous.

In typical tongue in cheek fashion of course.

Hendry has little to lose from Australia move

The move does look like a pretty enticing one for Hendry. What has he really got to lose?

He’s evidently not in Neil Lennon’s plans and probably wouldn’t feature between now and May.

So a chance for him to live at the other side of the world and hopefully get some first-team football is surely one to take.

It’s not a massive risk either as the loan deal is likely to be just until the end of the season.

If he impresses, and likes it down under, he can always look to extent his stay with a permanent move.

But otherwise, he’s only lost six months of his career.

Hendry is contracted at Celtic until May 2022 ( but you would expect him to move permanently before that stage.

Such a move would be of benefit to both parties.
