The 19-year-old star has left Celtic on loan this week.
The 19-year-old midfielder joined Ross County on a season-long loan from the Hoops on deadline day.
In doing so, the Celtic academy product has strengthened his chances of playing regular Premiership football.
Christie had a couple of successful loan spells with Aberdeen before returning to Parkhead last summer and establishing himself as a huge player for the Bhoys.
And Henderson admits that he's 'buzzing' at the prospect of playing every week, but revealed that Celtic boss Neil Lennon has long-term plans for him in Glasgow.
He told The Scottish Sun: "Neil Lennon said it was a chance for me to develop and then come back to challenge for a first-team place.
“I just need to get my head down and work hard. Ryan Christie went out on loan and did unbelievably well at Aberdeen, so it shows what can be achieved.
“I’m buzzing about the move. It’s a good chance for me to play regular first-team football.”
Henderson really could return to Celtic a much better player if he gets to play regularly at County.
As mentioned, the loan system has done wonders for Christie and defender Kristoffer Ajer in the past and there's no reason why the teenage midfielder can't follow in their footsteps.
Henderson's debut could come at home to St Mirren on Saturday week.
