Well, Celtic have confirmed the departure of Jack Hendry.

The big centre-back has left Celtic to join Belgian side Oostende, after helping them to a fifth-placed finish in the top flight last season.

That was Hendry’s second loan move away from the Hoops after spending the previous season in Australia with Melbourne.

The 26-year-old only managed to start 18 games for the Bhoys in all competitions since joining three-and-a-half years ago.

And the news of his departure might’ve delighted quite a lot of Celtic fans once upon a time, considering how much he struggled under Brendan Rodgers.

But Hendry has blossomed into quite a good defender and one who played for Scotland at Euro 2020.

Here’s how some fans of the Parkhead club reacted to his exit now:


Despite the Celtic fans’ complaints here, there’s still an argument that he wouldn’t have been good enough.

Ange Postecoglou is the man in charge at Parkhead now following his unveiling on Friday and his biggest job is to solidify the defence.

Celtic conceded 29 Premiership goals last season, 16 more than Rangers who won the title by 25 points.

It’s the most amount of league goals that the Hoops have shipped in a full season since 2015-16 under Ronny Deila.

Hendry’s a good player but Postecoglou needs quality and unfortunately, the big Scot never really looked of that vintage.
