Asked about a Tweet his brother sent after his signing was announced that read “My the Pars”, Henderson replied, “I’ve never seen this!”

He has accomplished a lot in the game; he has won trophies, I don’t win trophies but he won it all in Scotland, he did it in Norway (with Rosenborg on loan, winning the championship and the cup) and now he does it in Italy.

“He’s done a great job from a young age. All I do is admire him and try to do whatever he’s done.”
