Henrik Larsson's Return To Celtic Park Will Give You Goosebumps

Celtic's legendary striker Henrik Larsson received a rapturous welcome on his return to Celtic Park last year.

Larsson, who signed from Feyenoord for just £650,000 in 1997, spent seven incredibly successful years at the club where he scored 174 goals in 221 appearances.

I mean, just look at the following stats. This man was a machine back in the 90's.

Larsson forged a special relationship with the fans during that time and today, he was given an incredible reception on a special day for midfielder Scott Brown.

With just half an hour to play, another Celtic legend, Martin O'Neil, decided to bring on the 46-year-old in a memorable moment for those in attendance.

Just listen to the reception he receives after replacing Charlie Mulgrew. What a moment.

Celtic's official Twitter account soon announced his arrival on social media and as expected, fans went nuts.


Scott Brown's testimonial eventually finished 2-2 and Larsson was close to netting in the second half, but was denied by goalkeeper Conor O'Malley.

He then produced a very wayward free-kick, which were never his best attribute during his playing days.

We're pretty sure he'd still do a job for Celtic, nowadays.
