  • Celtic's double deadline day signings from Dundee

    Celtic's double deadline day signings from Dundee

    By: Paul Cuddihy on 01 Feb, 2018 00:21

  • CELTIC have made a double transfer deadline day swoop, signing defender Jack Hendry on a four-and-a-half-year contract, and goalkeeper Scott Bain on a loan deal until the end of the season, both players joining from Dundee.

    Jack began his career with Partick Thistle before he moved to Wigan Athletic in September 2015. During his time in England he also had loan spells with Shrewsbury Town and MK Dons before returning north last July when he signed for Dundee.

    And his performances for the Dens Park side have impressed many observers, with Celtic winning the race to sign him on transfer deadline day.

    This season, Jack has made 30 appearances for Dundee, scoring two goals, and he drew praise from Hoops manager, Brendan Rodgers, following Celtic’s 1-0 win over Dundee at Celtic Park back in October.

    Now, Jack has committed his future to the Scottish Champions and is looking forward to meeting up with his new team-mates this week and starting to train with them.

    Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, Jack Hendry said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Celtic. Joining the Scottish champions is a brilliant move for me. I know, from playing against Celtic this season, the quality of players that are at the club and I can’t wait to start training with my new team-mates.

    “I also know that working with Brendan Rodgers and the rest of the coaching staff here will improve me as a player and I’m looking forward to working hard every day to repay the faith they’ve shown in signing me.

    “I’ve already experienced playing at Celtic Park as an opposition player, but I can’t wait to run out wearing the Celtic jersey and play in front of the Celtic supporters.”

    Scott Bain began his career with Aberdeen, during which time he spent a season on loan at Elgin City, before joining Alloa Athletic in June 2011.

    After three years there, he joined Dundee, and during his time at Dens Park, he was also twice called up to the Scotland squad by former national team manager, Gordon Strachan. He had joined Hibernian on loan at the start of January, but he has now made the switch to Paradise.

    Scott told the official Celtic website: “This is biggest club in Scotland and one of the biggest clubs in the world, so I just can’t believe that I’m here.

    “I phoned my dad earlier today just to say that I was leaving Easter Road and on the road to Glasgow, and he was buzzing and delighted for me. I can’t believe I was on the bench for Hibs against Celtic last weekend and then, just a few days later, I’m signing for Celtic.

    “It’s not something that, when I went on loan to Hibs, I thought was ever going to happen, so the past few days have been great, and to get it over the line and be here is absolutely amazing.”
