Scotland defender Jack Hendry has caught headlines after his stunning performance for Club Brugge against Lionel Messi and PSG.

The former Dundee defender joined the Belgian side this summer after initially leaving Celtic for KV Oostende, where he spent last season on loan. Hendry has shone in Belgium over the last 12 months and his form has brought him back into Scotland head coach Steve Clarke’s plans, as well as earning him a move to the Belgian champions.

His latest appearance came on Wednesday night in a 1-1 draw with PSG in the Champions League, the French club playing a world-class front three of Kylian Mbappe, Messi and Neymar. Hendry handled the game excellently, highlighting a sharp rise from being at Dundee in 2018 and his move to Celtic not working out as planned.

Club Brugge head coach Philippe Clement said: “I’ve been through a lot of nights here over the years, but I think this is the most beautiful. This is history. Not only because of the result, because that could have been even better, but especially because of the way in which it was done.

“PSG is the best team in a long time who has played here. If you can achieve such a performance both offensively and defensively, then I am very proud of my group of players. We have made great strides forward. PSG have gone all out for it too. They had their stars on the field. This is just fantastic.”

Hendry’s performance hasn’t been missed by fans back in Scotland.
