Celtic fans react on Twitter to Liam Henderson's loan move

Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson completed a surprise loan move to Rosenborg.

 

Celtic youngster Liam Henderson has moved on loan until the end of the season to Norwegian side Rosenborg, the BBC reported.

Henderson had impressed over the international break with his performance for Scotland's under-19 side.

The 18-year-old central midfielder is highly rated and has made 14 first team appearances this season, scoring once and providing one assist.

He featured in the recent Scottish League Cup final win over Dundee United, coming off the bench for the final eight minutes.

The switch is designed to get him playing more regularly and starting games, with competition for places at Celtic making it tough to do so on a weekly basis at present.

Fans have been split with regards of the merits of the loan though, with those opposed to it believing he should be staying at Celtic to compete for a spot and given chances by Ronny Deila.

Here is a look at the mixed reaction via Twitter...
