Wigan signed Hendry in 2015 as a youngster from Partick Thistle and he played three times for the Latics in his first season as they gained promotion from the third tier under Gary Caldwell.

They loaned him out to Shrewsbury Town during that campaign and he played six times for the Shrews before heading back to the DW Stadium that summer.

Hendry was on the move again in the season after and linked up with MK Dons on loan. He made 12 appearances in all competitions for the Dons before leaving Wigan on a permanent basis to join Dundee.
