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…
