Celtic Fan’s 'Henrik Larsson' Passport Goes Viral And The Man Himself Approves
A passport featuring the middle name Henrik Larsson has went viral on social media, and the Celtic legend himself has taken the time to show his approval.
With Brendan Rodgers' side playing against Valencia this evening in the second-leg of their last-32 Europa League tie, around 10,000 Hoops fans are thought to have made the journey to Spain in the hope of seeing an likely comeback after last week's 2-0 defeat in Glasgow.

One supporter making the pilgrimage obviously had a very interesting set of parents, after his ID revealed he shares his middle name with one of Celtic's greatest-ever players.
In today's modern world of social media, it wasn't too long before the screenshot had actually found its way to the retired Swede himself, who was quick to give it a like on his personal Instagram account.
"Flying oot tae Valencia and meet a boy wae Henrik Larsson as his middle name :)))) got tae gee it tae his da." said Kieran on Twitter.

In other news, Spanish police are taking a lot of criticism from Celtic fans due to their aggressive approach to policing the travelling support ahead of tonight's game against Valencia.
Thousands of Hoops supporters arrived in the Spanish city yesterday ahead of the Europa League last 32 second leg clash with the La Liga giants.
And most would have been looking forward to some fun in the sun given it's going to be a very tough task for Brendan Rodgers' men to overturn a 2-0 first leg defeat.
Unfortunately, some scenes from the city suggest the Celtic supporters have been getting unfairly treated by the police.
