Celtic loanee Ewan Henderson will bring a ‘different dimension’ to the Dunfermline team says manager Stevie Crawford.

The Celtic playmaker has arrived on loan for the rest of the season as the Pars look to earn promotion to the Scottish Premiership. Crawford believes he has coped well with a hard start to life in Dunfermline that’s included three tough matches against Dundee, Raith Rovers and Hearts, two defeats and one draw.

Crawford said ahead of this weekend’s Scottish Championship match with Ayr United: “To be fair Ewan hadn’t even had a training session with us when we introduced him into the Dundee game. All year we had done our homework on him, technically he is very comfortable on the ball, he sees a forward pass.

“It was a hard night for him in the Rovers game and then he came on and had a part to play in the draw against Hearts. He will be a big player for us in the coming games. When we brought him in we knew it was only for a few games but we are thankful that Celtic have made it possible for us to get him into the building.

“He will play a part as will all the players at the club. He brings a different dimension. Ewan has good body movement, he sends players the wrong way. He has got that slight pass in him, he is creative and I am sure that he will be an exciting player for us over the next five games.”
