Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has cleared the air regarding the future of Jack Hendry at the club, after revealing he wants the defender to go out on loan.

Hendry joined Celtic from Dundee United for £1.5million last January but has struggled to impress.

A string of mistakes, due to his inability to pass the football properly has seen him fall largely out-of-favour at Celtic this season.

After seeing his game time reduced drastically over the last few months, Rodgers has revealed his plans for Hendry. Speaking to the BBC earlier today, the former Liverpool manager stated the following:

Northern Ireland v Estonia - UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifier

Johnny Evans: We need to win our next three games

Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans believes they need to win the first four games of the EURO 2020 qualifiers if they want to qualify for the final tournament.

“He’s played really well in games and played in other games when there’s been pressure, so he’s had to deal with all of that.”

“He’s at that age when he needs to be playing for the continuation of his development.”

“The next best thing for him over this six-month period is to get games at the highest level he can in a good environment.”
