CELTIC defender Osaze Urhoghide will have been hoping to follow in Jack Hendry's footsteps by kick-starting a career that had stalled at Parkhead by impressing in defence for KV Oostende whilst on loan - but the centre-half has got off to a difficult start in Belgium.

Hendry was struggling for game time when he was shipped out on loan to the Belgian top flight, impressing enough to win a big-money move to Club Brugge and claim a spot in Steve Clarke's international set-up.

Urhoghide, who arrived at Celtic Park last summer after joining on a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday, made his first-team debut against Real Betis in a Europa League dead rubber in December and made a solitary appearance for the B team in the SPFL Trust Trophy before leaving on loan in January.

Fellow summer signings Carl Starfelt and Cameron Carter-Vickers have been Ange Postecoglou's preferred pairing at centre-back and the Parkhead manager can also call upon Stephen Welsh, Christopher Jullien and Nir Bitton.

Urhoghide joined Oostende on loan in a bid to get more minutes but the 21-year-old endured an afternoon to forget in Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Mechelen.

Karim Mrabti gave his side the lead shortly before the interval and Uhroghide's debut was then cut short at the break as he was subbed off.

Former Celtic winger Maryan Shved then doubled Mechelen's lead shortly after the restart before Rob Schoofs sealed the win witha third with just over an hour played.
