Kare Ingebrigtsen explains what's surprised him about Liam Henderson

Celtic owned youngster Liam Henderson has already made a positive impression at loan side Rosenborg.

Rosenborg manager Kare Ingebrigtsen has been quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times giving his initial thoughts on Celtic owned youngster Liam Henderson.

Henderson has linked up with Rosenborg on a deal to the end of this season and he’s already made a positive impression on his new boss.

“He looked good in training. He has good skills and has a surprisingly good shot with his left foot,” said Ingebrigtsen.

“He must take time to get to know the boys and the way we play, so there is no rush for him to play.”

One of the things that Celtic first team boss Ronny Deila will be looking for with any of his players on loan away from the club, is development and for them to make the most of their natural assets at their loan sides.

Henderson is an extremely talented midfielder and it’s encouraging that he seems to be settling in quickly and doesn’t appear to be daunted by the scale and pressure of his loan switch.

Fingers crossed he can add to the initial positive impression that he’s made and work his way into the Rosenborg first team.

It will then be a case of trying to build some form and consistency, which leads to a little bit of pressure being placed on the shoulders of Deila over the summer looking ahead to next season.

Celtic already have some very good central midfield options, but a youngster keeping those options on their toes will only benefit the side.
