Regan Hendry has signed a two year contract with Raith Rovers after being released by Celtic.

It is the third time that the midfielder has joined the Fife club after two stints on loan.

Hendry played four matches for Raith last season but returned to Celtic after suffering cruciate ligament damage during a match against Arbroath.

Like many talented young players, especially midfielders, Hendry found it impossible to break into the Celtic first team with the Development League not really providing the test to push his progress after coming through at a similar time to Liam Henderson.

Hendry enjoyed two seasons playing in the UEFA Youth League but his only top team experience was in friendly matches.

Raith missed out on promotion to the Championship after being edged out in the play-off final by Queen of the South but under former Celtic scout John McGlynn they’ll be looking be favourites along with Falkirk for automatic promotion.
