Celtic's Liam Henderson explains what he learned from his loan move

Celtic U-20s

The Celtic player has explained just how much he wants to make it at the club.

Celtic player Liam Henderson has been speaking to Celtic TV about his spell on loan at Norwegian club Rosenborg and how his time away from Scotland has affected his mind-set.

The 19-year-old central midfielder is one of the brightest prospects at Celtic and it came as a surprise when he headed out on loan to Norway for the final months of last season. But Bhoys boss Ronny Deila knows that league better than most and he would have seen it as beneficial for the talented teenager.

Henderson finished his spell with 11 games under his belt – although the majority of those were substitute appearances – and yet he still managed to score three times, including a 10-minute brace against Viking.

Now back in Celtic training and looking ahead to the new campaign, Henderson reflected on his time away telling Celtic TV, “It was a really good three months, I really enjoyed the experience but I’m really glad to be back if I’m honest.

“The thing I learned most is that being away from here I realised how much I want to play for Celtic. Maybe before I went away I took things for granted but coming back now I’ve got a new outlook and hopefully that’s to my benefit.”

It certainly should be, with the new season just around the corner and Deila needing plenty of players for the upcoming Champions League qualifiers and subsequent domestic matches.

Henderson has appeared 22 times for Celtic to date and next season could be the one where he really shows how much he has grown and what he can do on a consistent basis.
