Celtic boss Neil Lennon will no doubt be keeping a close eye on how Ewan Henderson fares when the Hoops loanee makes his Ross County debut against St Mirren on Saturday.

The move to Dingwall is a good chance for the player to get some regular first-team football. One player who is looking forward to playing with Henderson is County striker Billy McKay.

“Ewan looks like he has an eye for a goal and an eye for a pass. I can see why he is highly-rated at Celtic” he said, as reported by the Press and Journal.

“I’ve only trained with Ewan two or three times so far, but he seems very creative and looks like he will be able to get in between the lines and trouble the opposition.”

To some extent, it was a bit of a surprise that Celtic allowed Henderson to move on loan during the summer transfer window.

Performed well last season for Hoops

He was excellent for the Hoops in his performances last season. He has three assists in six games, which is a very good return.

However, so far this season he has played only one minute of first-team football. That could be why Neil Lennon and the player decided that a move was the best thing for the player.

Should Henderson have an excellent season for County, it could help his chances of making the Hoops first-team on a regular basis. Neil Lennon will be hoping that he gets off to a good start against St Mirren, and kicks on from there.
