Celtic’s Jack Hendry has chance for redemption as he faces Salzburg tormentor again

In the international break, Celtic defender Jack Hendry has to face Moanes Dabour once again.

Hendry has been called up by Scotland, while Dabour will be representing Israel.

Recently, the pair met in the Europa League as Red Bull Salzburg hosted Celtic. And there was only one winner.

Dabour ran riot against the Celtic defence, netting twice on the way to a 3-1 RB Salzburg victory.

In this game and in others, Hendry was criticised by Celtic fans for under-performing.

However, rather than fear Dabour, Hendry must look at this upcoming game and use it as his motivation.

He has come in for a lot of criticism for his performances lately and he needs to show that he can handle top European strikers like Dabour.

The 23-year-old faces a major challenge in trying to tame Dabour. But if he is selected, he needs to show that he is capable of keeping him quiet.

The Israel striker is in great form with 10 goals in 13 games this season. And Hendry will have his work cut out to stop him from adding to that tally against the Scots.

But if he can redeem himself, it proves a point to his critics and shows that perhaps he could be Celtic quality after all.
