Celtic sign Dundee’s Jack Hendry & Scott Bain on a ‘record fee for the club’

Celtic have signed defender Jack Hendry and goalkeeper Scott Bain from Premiership side Dundee.

The club say the undisclosed fee received for Hendry is a record for the club; while team-mate joins Celtic on loan until the end of the season.

Hendry said via the club’s official website:

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Celtic. Joining the Scottish champions is a brilliant move for me.”

Bain added that he was delighted to have join the biggest club in Scotland. Celtic were in the market for a goalkeeper cover following a knee injury to 35-year-old Craig Gordon, and that has ruled him out for about 12 weeks.

The 26-year-old joined Hibernian on loan earlier this month but has played for Neil Lennon’s side and was allowed to move on with another club.

Hendry, who has agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal said:

“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.”

“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.”
