St Johnstone have conducted a Q&A session with striker Callum Hendry on Twitter, as football remains suspended.

The rapidly developing Coronavirus situation has seen the suspension of the game in Scotland, as well as events that constitute mass gatherings across the world.

Football is likely to take a backseat for months before resuming, as measures are taken to try and control and ultimately stop the spread.

Clubs have been quite busy on social media trying to keep up the engagement with fans during the shutdown, and the Saints opened the floor to questions for Hendry on Wednesday.

One asked the striker, who has nine goals in all competitions this season, which player he feels is the best in the world.

It’s got to be Messi. Always Lionel Messi. He’s just incredible and has it all,” he answered.

Someone then asked who his hero was growing up, to which he replied: “We went on a family holiday once to Barcelona and my Dad bought us all Barca tops while on a tour of the Nou Camp. We went to a match as well – Barcelona v Sevilla – and Ronaldinho scored both goals that night. I loved watching him when I was younger.

Hendry was also asked for the best player he’s played against to date. He said: “Odsonne Edouard. In person, you see just how big he is. You don’t think a player of his size could be so good with his feet, it’s great to watch.”

Edouard has certainly reached new heights for Celtic this season, scoring 27 goals in all competitions before the suspension.

The Frenchman is someone that Hendry should perhaps try and aspire to reach the level of, with the likes of Messi and Ronaldinho probably just a step too far…
