Ross County co-boss Stuart Kettlewell has praised Ewan Henderson following the Celtic youngster’s good start to life in Dingwall.

Whilst he couldn’t feature at the weekend against his parent club, Henderson has made three appearances for the Staggies since his loan switch. He was also used by the Scotland U21s earlier this month.

His adopted co-manager has praised his efforts. Kettlewell told the Courier (22/10/19, page 49): “The initial period for Ewan has been really good. He’s done well here.

“He’s an excellent kid to work with on a daily basis and somebody I believe will have big future in the game.”

Henderson will target more Ross County appearances

With the level of talent within the Celtic side just now, Henderson was never likely to make much of an impact at Parkhead this season.

It’s why his Ross County loan will be brilliant for his personal development. It’ll allow him to play at the same level but on a more consistent basis.

It’s important for the midfielder to build on his decent Staggies start. After starting the opening three games of his stint there, he was benched against St Johnstone and was ineligible against Celtic.

He’ll be hoping to pick up some momentum when Ross County travel to Hibs this weekend. Henderson’s new boss certainly seems to think the world of him.
