It looks as if a player that is out of the first-team picture could be leaving Celtic before the transfer window slams shut.

The Daily Record is reporting that Jack Hendry is ‘likely’ to move to Motherwell on loan. Kilmarnock are also reportedly interested, but at the moment, the Fir Park side have the edge on the deal.

Should the move go ahead, it would be a good one for both the player and the club. Hendry hasn’t featured for Celtic at all this season.

The Hoops need to do more about getting squad players out of the club, if they are not going to play for the first-team. Moving on Hendry, even on loan, would be a good start.

No doubt Hendry will want to play first-team football on a regular basis. That is not going to happen at Celtic. However, it may well happen at Motherwell.

Hendry hasn’t really had the best of times since joining the Hoops from Dundee for £1.5 million in January 2018.

He has failed to hold down a place in the Hoops side under firstly Brendan Rodgers and now under Neil Lennon. It would be good for the player to move on and get some game time under his belt for at least a season.

The Hoops have a fair number of centre-backs at the club, and at the moment Hendry does not seem to be a player that has much of a future at Celtic. A move to Motherwell could allow him to rebuild his career.
