Ross County have announced the signing of promising Celtic midfielder Ewan Henderson.

The 19-year-old has signed with the Staggies on a season-long loan deal. He played a handful of games for the Hoops in the second half of last term, but has now made the switch to Dingwall for some regular minutes.

It is a good signing for the Staggies this late in the transfer window.

Henderson offers Ross County creative inspiration

After 4-1 and 3-0 defeats to Livingston and Aberdeen respectively in their past two matches, the Staggies were in need of a positive boost. Henderson’s arrival should give them that.

Highly rated by some fans in Glasgow, Henderson made seven appearances last term. He created three assists in that time, turning in some exciting performances in the process.

Ryan Christie is performing excellently right now though, and with Tom Rogic due to return soon, his chances of playing regular football this term were minimal.

County offer an exciting proposition for him. The Staggies are not shy of playing young midfielders, with the likes of Tom Grivosti, Harry Paton, and Simon Power, who are all under 21, being given first-team opportunities.

It’ll likely mean Henderson will get many minutes up north this term. He is an ambitious player with excellent technical abilities, although he lacks a bit of physicality.

He’ll be able to build that up in Dingwall. His newly adopted club like to play football on the ground too, which will play to his technical strengths.

This is a good deal for Henderson and Ross County. It’ll be interesting to see how he copes with regular football up north.
