Celtic's Liam Henderson has perfect chance to impress Deila against his former side

A closer look at one of Celtic's brightest prospect's current situation.

When Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson moved on loan to Norwegian side Rosenborg, it caught many people by surprise.

The 18-year-old has already racked up 22 senior appearances for Celtic, and while he had been used more as a late substitute in recent times, the feeling was he would get chances at the business-end of the season, especially if the Scottish Premiership was tied up with time to spare.

Instead Henderson will continue his development in Norway, but even there it looks like he will have to be very patient before he can show what he can do.

The Celtic teenager is extremely talented and looks set for a bright future. But the way Rosenborg have started their latest league campaign suggests he will get even less game-time than he would have had he remained in Scotland.

Rosenborg defeated Aalesunds 5-0 at the start of April before going one better against FK Haugesund, winning 6-0 last time out.

Henderson came on for the last 14 minutes of that match, the only one of three late substitutes not to find the net, and while he is just starting out on his latest journey, Rosenborg’s current form means he will have to go some to make a notable impact prior to his Celtic return.

His next chance comes when his temporary side plays Celtic manager Ronny Deila’s former club Stromsgodset this weekend, and what better way for Henderson to get noticed than to put in a fine performance against a side his boss knows very well?
