Henchoz Signs

Last updated : 29 January 2005 By Kevin Smith
Stephane Henchoz has signed for Celtic, from Liverpool. He has signed a contract lasting until the end of the season, with the option to an extension.

Henchoz will wear the number 2 at Paradise, which has been vacant since Tom Boyd's retirement a few years back.

Henchoz is a central defender and will pair up alongside Stan Varga as it looks as though Bobo Balde is on his way out.

From what I have seen, Stephane Henchoz is a very good player. He was a favourite of Gerard Houlier at Liverpool and was a big part of their successes over the last few years, helping them to win the UEFA Cup.

He is tall and good in the air, he will be a good addition to the Celtic side. He will not play tomorrow though, as he is not match fit. He turned down other offers to come to Celtic and should be applauded for this. I am looking forward to seeing him in the side.

Welcome, big man.
