Celtic left it late last night to get their business complete before the closure of the transfer window.

The Parkhead were successful in adding goalkeeper Scott Bain and Jack Hendry from Dundee in a complicated deal that also saw Scott Allan leave Dens Park to finish the campaign on loan with Neil Lennon at Easter Road.

Bain has been brought in on a short term loan until the end of the season following the injury to Craig Gordon that will sideline the Scotland internationalist for the next 12 weeks. And the former Aberdeen keeper who was frozen out at Dens Park was thrilled to get into Celtic Park.

He told the official Celtic website: “This is biggest club in Scotland and one of the biggest clubs in the world, so I just can’t believe that I’m here.

“I phoned my dad earlier today just to say that I was leaving Easter Road and on the road to Glasgow, and he was buzzing and delighted for me. I can’t believe I was on the bench for Hibs against Celtic last weekend and then, just a few days later, I’m signing for Celtic.

“It’s not something that, when I went on loan to Hibs, I thought was ever going to happen, so the past few days have been great, and to get it over the line and be here is absolutely amazing.”

Celtic have actively pursued Hendry throughout this month and had a £500k offer rejected in the opening stages of the window.

The-four-and-a-half year deal for the 22-year-old was forced through at the very last minute in a move that is believed to stretch nearer the £1.5m mark, a club record fee for Dundee. The hold-up was believed to pivot around Dundee's wish for the player to return and finish the season on loan at Dens Park, something Celtic rebuffed. 

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Celtic," the young defender told www.celticfc.net. "Joining the Scottish champions is a brilliant move for me. I know, from playing against Celtic this season, the quality of players that are at the club and I can’t wait to start training with my new team-mates.

“I also know that working with Brendan Rodgers and the rest of the coaching staff here will improve me as a player and I’m looking forward to working hard every day to repay the faith they’ve shown in signing me.

“I’ve already experienced playing at Celtic Park as an opposition player, but I can’t wait to run out wearing the Celtic jersey and play in front of the Celtic supporters.”

The duo join earlier signing Marvin Compper and Lewis Morgan as well as latest recruit Charly Musonda who made his debut in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Hearts at Celtic Park.

Morgan will finish the season with St Mirren before teaming up with Celtic this summer, a move that Dundee had wished to replicate. 

However, the player will join Brendan Rodgers' side immediately.
