Dunfermline Athletic have received praise from Ewan Henderson after the former Celtic loanee’s short stint at East End Park.

Celtic sent the youngster on loan to the cinch Championship club in the second half of last season, where Henderson played 10 times for then-manager Stevie Crawford, scoring once. He featured in both promotion play-off matches against Raith Rovers but was unable to help Dunfermline into the Premiership.

Henderson has returned to Celtic alongside fellow ex-Dunfermline player Kerr McInroy, where he will hope to break into first-team plans under new manager Ange Postecoglou. But the midfielder says the Dunfermline stint – alongside a six month loan at Ross County two seasons ago – will help him transition into a regular at senior level.

He said (DR): “Getting games was a great experience. Playing against men every week was a big factor for me too. It was a big jump from reserves to the first team – it was higher standards. But I enjoyed the loans very much.”
