Celtic talent Liam Henderson comments on his Norwegian loan and winning the double

The midfielder enjoyed a successful spell in Norwegian football.

Celtic take on Greenock Morton in the Scottish Cup this afternoon and despite the doom and gloom surrounding Ronny Deila's men at the moment the game could take the club one step closer to a double this season.

Celtic may have drawn their last two games but they remain top of the Scottish Premiership and a win v Morton would take them into the final four of the cup.

Celtic do however have a player on their books who has already won a double this year.

Liam Henderson is currently out on loan at Scottish Championship side Hibernian. Earlier in the season however he was with Norwegian side Rosenborg.

They won the league and cup double in Norway and he told the Edinburgh Evening News this weekend of his pride at the medals:

“Rosenborg won the Tippeligaen and the cup so I got two medals sent over for me.

“It was strange to get a cup medal because in Britain you have to be part of the match-day squad to qualify whereas in Norway you only need to play in one round.

“But I’m delighted the boys went on to win that trophy and I’m proud of the medal.

“I keep in touch with Jonas Svensson, the right back, Fredrik
 Midstjo and Ole Salinas who has just gone to St Etienne in France.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time over there, made friends. People don’t realise how massive a club that is. The manager was brilliant for me as well.”

Henderson featured 11 times for the Norwegian side and scored three times in his impressive stint in Scandinavia.

He is now a regular in the Hibs side and will be hoping to book his current team's place in the next round of the cup with a win against Inverness this afternoon.

Celtic may have a gem on their hands in this teenage double winner.
