The 19-year-old has made seven senior appearances for the Hoops, five of which came in the second half of last season.
He impressed during that spell, notching up three assists and showing some exciting potential.
His chances this term have been limited. To date he’s made just one substitute appearance in UEFA Champions League qualifying.
With Ryan Christie performing excellently and Tom Rogic due to return, his chances of a regular game this season were slim.
A move to another Scottish Premiership side is an exciting opportunity for the youngster.
Ross County appear to be a well coached, ambitious outfit too, despite having only just got themselves promoted from the Championship.
The Highland side beat Hamilton on the opening day 3-0 before securing a 0-0 draw away to Hearts. Results since haven’t gone their way since but they’ll be hoping Henderson can add a bit of attacking class to their midfield options.
Hopefully he can follow in the footsteps of talents like Christie and Kristoffer Ajer, who have shown that loans away from the club can kick start careers at Celtic Park.
Fans are excited to see what he can do up north, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Cracking move for him unlucky this season so far with they way he have played but anytime he’s played he’s stood out eye for a pass and better than his brother. Gr8 for both clubs

Great move for everybody. Good club and well run. watched them play a few weeks back, and they were in major need of a decent midfielder. It’s a good tactic to send the best youngsters out to other SPFL clubs, as they can potentially help take points off the zombies!

Brilliant move. You’ve got a serious player on your hands there. Look after him, and he’ll absolutely boss it for you. Good luck to him.
