Colin Hendry declared bankrupt

Colin Hendry declared bankrupt

Rovers legendary defender Colin Hendry has been formally declared bankrupt at a Lancashire court.

Hendry was served with a demand for payment by his creditors on 12 March, a court in Blackpool has been told.

Hendry himself had tried to stagger the payments in a structured manner but the creditors he owed rejected these claims.

No figures were given by the court as to the total figure or the breakdown of debt that Colin owed but suffice to say it was fairly large for him to apply to be bankrupt.

District Judge Michael Buckley of Blackpool County Court granted the bankruptcy order.

Hendry in the 90's was Rovers premier defender after two spells at the club and enjoyed a terrific rapport with the fans at Ewood Park.

Hendry has suffered personal heartbreak recently in a non-financial capacity as his wife died last year after a botched operation.

Here at VB we wish Colin all the best.

Colin was a fantastic defender and did wonders for the community, hopefully he can work as a pundit or something?

Wish him all the best. He hasn't had the easiest time lately and just hope he has overcome his gambling troubles now, so he can start rebuilding not just for himself but for his family.

Hope his luck turns around he deserves it after the last couple of years. He never gave up on the pitch so sure he'll turn himself round.

Lets start a campaign to give him the testimonial he should have had when he went to Rangers!
