NEW Bhoy Jack Hendry hopes he will thrive on the big stage at Celtic after last night’s late deal.
The double signing of the 22-year-old central defender – along with goalkeeper Scott Bain – was confirmed following the transfer deadline.
Hendry said: “The manager has seen a lot in me. He’s recognised what I’m good at and what I can bring to the squad and, hopefully, I can repay that faith he’s shown in me.
“I really appreciate it and I’m looking forward to it.

“I feel that I thrive in this kind of environment. I like playing in big games and in big arenas and you don’t get much bigger than Celtic Park.
“It was a very long day, but to finally get it done is great. It’s hard to describe the feeling.
“To be part of this football club is a very proud moment for me.
“I’m very relieved that the deal was finally agreed. It was out there for quite a while, so for it to go down to the last day, it was a bit nervous, but I’m really excited to be here now and I can’t wait to get going.
“I just want to get started and that’s what I’m totally focused on.”
