Celtic’s Liam Henderson open to Hibernian return on loan

Liam Henderson joined Hibernian on loan from Celtic in the summer of 2015.

Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson has suggested to The Edinburgh Evening News that he could return to Hibernian next season.

The Scotland Under-21 international midfielder joined Hibernian on a season-long loan deal from Celtic in the summer of 2015.

“I’ve got a new manager to look forward to at Celtic but part of me says to come back here next season to get promotion,” Henderson told The Edinburgh Evening News.

“There will always be that part of me that will want to come back. There will always be a special place in my heart for the rest of my life for the fans, the boys, the manager.

“I can’t speak highly enough of any of them. In a way it’s good for me that there’s a new manager at Celtic, but part of me feels that I want to come back and get this club back to where it belongs.”

Hibernian have failed in the Scottish Premiership playoffs and will play in the Scottish Championship next season.

Henderson has had a fruitful campaign on a personal level at Hibs, and he should be pleased with his progress at Easter Road.

Celtic will have a new manager in charge next season, as Ronny Deila is leaving after two years at Celtic Park.

It remains to be seen if the youngster is part of the new manager’s plan next season, and perhaps it would be best for him if he does return to Hibs, maybe on a six-month loan deal.

Hibernian will take on Rangers in the final of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Saturday afternoon.
