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, he also won the Scottish domestic treble during his time with Glasgow giants Rangers and ended his career having made over 500 appearances.

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

He 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 tragically 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 he made a return to football with former side Blackburn Rovers as part of their coaching setup 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.

Currently out of the game he does the odd bit of after-dinner speaking and regularly watches his son Callum who has followed in his footsteps and currently plays in the Scottish League.
