Motherwell new-boy Stephen Hendrie is sure that his experience playing against world-class attacking talents in England will mean he is ready for anything the Scottish Premiership has to offer.

Hendrie joined West Ham from Hamilton as a youngster, and admits that training against the likes of Dmitri Payet was a huge eye-opener for him.

"West Ham are a great club and they had fantastic players when I was there," Hendrie said.

"Dmitri Payet was something else. He was an absolute joke and the stuff he did in training was mad.

"If I was not in same team as him at training then I would run away from him. Honestly he was unreal.

"Playing against him in training was hard but you learned a lot as you were up against one of the best players around.

"What Payet can do with a football is utter madness. He is quality and I have never seen any player do what he did with a ball at training.

"Some of his tricks and flicks that he did in training just left you feeling stupid.

"It was a great education though. To share a changing room and train with those players and to be in and around that environment was such a beneficial experience."
