Regan Hendry will play for a new club in the 2021/22 season, with the Celtic academy graduate confirming his exit from Raith Rovers.

Hendry initially spent time on loan at Raith from Celtic but was brought to the club permanently in 2019. He has turned into a midfield force under manager John McGlynn, who worked as Brendan Rodgers’ opposition scout at Parkhead for a period while Hendry was still in Glasgow.

The 23-year-old was arguably Raith’s star man in the 20/21 Scottish Championship season as they picked up an impressive promotion play-off spot, which was off the back of winning the League One title the season previous. Former Celtic player Hendry scored three goals and contributed five assists last season.

His role in starting McGlynn’s possession-based football is where Hendry really won plaudits and a move to England or the Scottish Premiership likely awaits. Hendry said of his Raith departure on social media: “Well, what a few years it’s been. I can’t speak highly enough about my time at Raith but for now, it’s time to move on.

“Thanks to everyone at the club for helping create memories that’ll last a lifetime with me. Also, massive thanks to the fans for the huge support you’ve showing me over the years. I wish nothing but the best for the club in the future and hopefully down the line we will meet again.”
