Celtic are reportedly ready to sell out-of-favour defender Jack Hendry, amid interest from numerous Premiership clubs.
According to Football Insider, Kilmarnock and Motherwell are both expected to make moves for the player.
He arrived as a promising young central defender but Hendry has fallen out of the first-team picture under Neil Lennon.
Judging by some of the reactions from these Celtic fans on social media, a move away from the club would be good business, providing there’s a player arriving in return.

Read Celtic verdict
There have been no suggestions that a swap deal or even a cash+player deal is in the offing, but you’d have to think that it is something the club have in the back of their mind.
A number of fans were quick to point out both Greg Taylor and David Turnbull as possible options.
While the two deals may not be connected, selling Hendry to one of the two clubs would certainly be a boost in negotiations.
Taylor has been heavily linked with a move to Celtic as a potential replacement for Kieran Tierney, while Turnbull has been a long-term target, who saw a move to the club fall through earlier in the summer.
While it would be a shame to see Hendry leave the club, he’s simply failed to make the step up. He would be moving on to pursue regular game time and fulfill the potential that many believe he has.
There doesn’t appear to be any ill feelings from either the club or supporters, but an acceptance that this was a transfer that hasn’t worked out in a way either party had hoped.
