Ross County midfielder Ewan Henderson says he is really enjoying himself in the Highlands following his summer move from Celtic.

With first-team opportunities at Celtic Park not looking likely in the summer, Henderson opted to move to Dingwall for experience on a temporary basis.

He’s made seven appearances this term and Henderson says life in the Highlands has been a fulfilling experience so far.

“The boys have been excellent with me, I just need to keep my head down and keep working hard and hopefully we can get results,” Henderson told the Ross-Shire Journal.

“I’m just here to develop my game, play a lot of games and I feel like I’m doing that. I’m really enjoying my time here.”

Henderson can’t play for Ross County this weekend

Against St Mirren, Henderson made it consecutive starts for the first time this season. It’s  shame that momentum can’t be continued this weekend as County take on his parent club.

A tidy player on the ball with an eye for a pass, the 19-year-old is a promising talent who has shown in flashes what’s he capable of. His Highland stint should give him the senior platform to get the experience he needs.

It’s set to be a different experience to what he’s been used to at Celtic too. At Parkhead he’s been used to winning trophies and success, but in Dingwall, it’s never going to be the same. They sit three points off the bottom in seventh and haven’t won in eight games.

Games don’t get much harder than Celtic this weekend and Henderson will no doubt be gutted not to play in the Dingwall battle.
