Where is Colin Hendry now?

An important member of the Blackburn Rovers squad which won the English Premier League title in 1995, Colin Hendry retired in 2003 after a brief spell playing for Blackpool.

A former Scottish international captain, Hendry also won the Scottish domestic treble during his time with Glasgow giants Rangers.

Upon retiring Colin Hendry rejoined former club Blackpool as manager in 2004 but was dismissed 18 months later after a string of bad results.

Hendry then spent nine months working with Steve Evans as his assistant manager at Boston United in 2007 before returning to Scotland when he was appointed manager of Scottish League One side Clyde.

Unfortunately, Hendry’s time at the club was short-lived and he had to resign in 2008 on compassionate grounds after his wife started to suffer from health problems stemming from botched cosmetic surgery.

After spending two years as a full-time carer for his wife she died in 2009.

During this period Hendry turned to drink and gambling as a relief from the stress that he was under and things became worse for him in 2010 when he was declared bankrupt after an ill-advised investment into the film industry .

In 2012 Hendry made a return to football with former side Blackburn Rovers as part of their coaching setup in 2012 but he left the club in June 2014 by mutual agreement.

In August 2015 Hendry was sentenced to 100 hours of community service after pleading guilty to stalking his former girlfriend Sarah Kinder.

It was alleged that he had bombarded her with texts and emails and had turned up at her home 10 times in one month, even sneaking inside on one occasion.

The pair got back together in February 2016 but Sarah left him once again a month later leaving the former Scotland international ‘extremely upset and confused’.

He then won her back at the end of 2016 and the pair got back together only for Sarah to split with him for a third time in June 2017.

Hendry was a member of the successful PlayOn soccer sevens side that won the Masters plate at the 2017 Hong Kong Masters and he also represented Scotland in the inaugral Star Sixes tournament in the same year.

His son Callum has followed in his father’s footsteps and currently plays in the Scottish League.
