He signed on loan from Celtic last week – now Ewan Henderson is keen to push on in Dunfermline colours.

The creative midfielder has joined fellow Celtic youngster Kerr McInroy in Stevie Crawford’s side, joining the Scottish Championship outfit until the end of the season. While it has been a tough week for the Pars off the back of 3-2 and 5-1 defeats to Dundee and Raith Rovers, Henderson has looked bright.

He’s looking forward to his stint with another big team: “The boys have been good with me since I came in. I felt like Dunfermline was a massive club, I have known and watched them all my life and they have good players here. I knew that it would help develop my game and that is all I looked at when I signed for them.

“I am at an age where I need to be playing week in week out. I just need to keep my head down, keep working hard and hopefully be playing. I knew in January that there had been contact when they tried to get me. The game time is limited at Celtic but you are playing with top class players every single day in training.

“All you can do is learn from them at a very young age which has helped me a lot in my game I would say. John Kennedy will keep an eye on me which is a positive for me. Tuesday was a tough one to take but hopefully all the lads will be able to bounce back in the next game on Saturday against Hearts with a win.”
