Biography


Born in Glasgow, Jack Hendry was a product of the Dundee United youth system but he ended up signing for Partick Thistle before making his debut on the last day of the 2014/2015 season.

After only a handful of appearances for The Jags, the defender moved south to sign for Wigan Athletic.

Jack spent time on loan at Shrewsbury Town and Milton Keynes Dons before being released by Wigan at the end of the 2016/2017 season, and returned to Scotland to sign for Dundee.

Jack scored on his debut for Dundee in a 2-1 victory over Raith Rovers in the League Cup Group Stage in July 2017, and immediately became an integral part of the Dundee defence under Neil McCann. Strong, commanding in the air and good on the ball, Jack made 30 appearances for Dundee in the first half of the season.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers recognised the defender’s quality, and Jack eventually joined Celtic for £1.5 million – record transfer fee for the Dees – in January 2018.

Since joining Celtic Jack has been capped by Scotland, and won multiple league and cup titles.

The defender fell out of favour under Neil Lennon and has spent time on loan to Melbourne City in Australia and KV Oostende in Belgium. Jack’s performances in Belgium have been widely praised, helping to turn Oostende from relegation candidates to European hopefuls as they secured a fifth placed finish in 2020/2021.

Jack was also voted Player of the Year by a respected Belgian football magazine, and earned a recall to the Scotland squad for Euro 2020.

KV Oostende eventually signed the defender on a permanent basis but withing two-months, was transferred to Club Brugge on a four-year deal.

Both moves netted Dundee a small windfall due to add-on clauses when he was initially sold to Celtic.
