JACK HENDRY has admitted he is happy to play anywhere for Celtic.

The 23-year-old defender, who arrived in a £1million-plus deal from Dundee in January, made his 11th appearance for the Hoops in the goalless draw against Kilmarnock in midweek.

Hendry said: “I like centre-half, but the gaffer asked me to play right-back on this occasion. Every time I can go out on the pitch for Celtic, I’m going to take it.

“If I have to go out and fill that role, then I feel I’m capable of doing it and I’ll take the opportunity with both hands.

“Sometimes I’ve had to go a bit higher up the pitch. I haven’t really experienced that, but it’s just about learning.

“Now, when I’m maybe playing centre-half in the future, I’ll have a better understanding of what the right-back’s going to do.

“For me, it’s another experience. It’s about trying to get as much information as possible and trying to learn from it.

“You have to believe in yourself and have that self-confidence. I feel I have that I have that but there are limits. You have to try and balance it. I feel I have that and I don’t want to lose it.

“Hopefully, that will put me in good stead for the rest of my career.”
