LIAM HENDERSON reckons he has become a better player and person following his loan move to Rosenborg.

Celtic’s 19-year-old midfielder made nine appearances and scored three goals during his three-month spell in Norway.

Henderson, who also turned out 15 times for the SPFL champions last term, is delighted to be back working under Ronny Deila.

He said: “I really enjoyed it out in Norway, but it’s really good to be back.

“I’ve come back a better player and a better person, I’ve learned a lot in a short space of time. I’ve really grown up and I’ve become more mature so I’m sure that will help me in the future.

“The manager decided to send me to Norway and it was a great three months for me. If you go out on loan you can learn a lot and you come back and you are raring to go.”

Asked how his move had aided his development on and off the field, Henderson added: “Living by myself and realising what I have back here.

“Maybe I took it for granted a little bit. Out there I realised how much it means to play for Celtic and how much I want to do well here.

“Obviously I missed my friends and family, that was a big part of it as well. It was the first time I had lived by myself and having to cook and clean so you grow up.

“That was one of the main things for me to go out there and become a better person, get more life experience as well as the football side. I think that has really helped me.”
