Celtic’s hamstring hoodoo has struck again with Jack Hendry the latest victim.
Since the turn of the year Olivier Ntcham, Ryan Christie, James Forrest and Dedryck Boyata have all suffered hamstring injuries with Hendry’s coming three minutes into the second half of Monday’s Reserve League Glasgow derby.
Speaking to Celtic TV Neil Lennon confirmed:
Jack Hendry played in a reserve game and tore his hamstring so he looks like he is going to be out for the rest of the season as well.
The Reserve League match was just Hendry’s second match of 2019, the other was the 4-1 first team win over Motherwell at the end of February.
While he was unlikely to be a first pick in the remaining SPFL matches with Boyata and Filip Benkovic moving on in the summer Lennon might have been looking to see him in action at some stage.
Going into next season Kris Ajer and Jozo Simunovic are the only central defenders with top team experience which is bound to be a position that the new manager will look to address as a priority.
