Hi guys hope you are well.
Last night i had a night on utube and watched Henrik. I still wonder if we will ever see a more complete professional at our club again. What he done words cannot describe. So here is my question? How or what are your favourite memories of OUR King. HH.

{Ed007's Note - The way he told the Club he wanted to go back to Sweden so the Club offered him a £1 million bonus to see out his contract, he then accepted the Club asking the fans to raise that money with a pathetic "testimonial" before he joined Barcelona for on a free transfer - that always raises a smile with me.}

Still wouldn't want him as our next manager lol.

My son in law asked me when we were out for a pint before he married my daughter what three events would stick out on my mind if I was in my deathbed tomorrow?

After some thought I replied (1) the day my daughter was born my son didn’t get a mention (2) the day my father died and I gave him communion after renewing his baptismal promises and (3) Larsson’s chip against Klos.

The ultimate consummate professional and for me the greatest ever player to wear the hoops for out and out consistency I’d nothing else. I told my son who had a season ticket for all of Larsson’s seasons to watch him because he might never see the likes again. We never have to date seen anything even close. I know I’ve angered the Jimmy Johnstone fans but the next time we have the best of a players career then when we’re finished with him Barcelona sign him and he turns around a Champions League final for them then after that arguably the biggest team in Engerland take him and want to keep him for another season I’ll change my mind. From a footballing perspective an absolute legend and world class. Right up there with Johnstone, McStay and Dalgliesh.

Get over it Ed, what's a million quid and a trail of broken promises between friends? In all seriousness, his chip over Klos is always right near the top for me.

{Ed007's Note - He pulled the homesickness stunt at Feyenoord as well which is one of the reasons they went to court.}

Larsson ended up our 3rd all-time Celtic goal scorer in our history.
He joined level on 4th place with Stevie Chalmers after scoring in the Scottish Cup Semi Final in 2004.
Larsson went into 4th place on his own, when he scored at home to Aberdeen at the end of April. Celtic lost to a last minute Aberdeen goal, which ended our 77 game unbeaten Home record.
He was now only 2 goals behind Jimmy Quinn in 3rd place.
Celtic lost again at home to Dunfermline, who would be our opponents in the 2004 Scottish Cup final.
Henrik scored in our 2-1 defeat, which put him only One goal behind Jimmy Quinn. Celtic were presented with the league trophy after the Dunfermline match.
I remember watching young Jordan Larsson running riot against the other kids on the Celtic Park turf and he looked a star for the future.
So Larsson was still One goal behind Jimmy Quinn with only One league game and One Scottish Cup final to go before the end of his Celtic career.
Larsson played his last competitive home clash against Dundee Utd and with only 20 minutes to go, he finally scored to equal Quinn’s record and only minutes later Larsson scored again to become the Celtic 3rd top goal scorer in our history.
Henrik went out on a high by helping Celtic win the Scottish Cup Final against Dunfermline in 2004.
Celtic were trailing 1-0 before a Larsson double helped Celtic win the cup 3-1.
Larsson was the difference between the sides that day but that was something the Celtic fans witnessed constantly in his 7 Magnificent years at our club.

His goals in the UEFA Cup final stand out for me but my own favourite memory is having the opportunity to play against him 👍🏻😉.

31 Mar 2021 16:25:23
Please spill the beans, ice man.

31 Mar 2021 16:42:33
My final league game for my team was against Celtic at Parkhead. A game that a lot of fans will remember.

31 Mar 2021 17:39:01
Who did you play with Ice man.

31 Mar 2021 18:15:40
Ice Man, don't leave us hingin.

31 Mar 2021 18:20:39
IMHO Larsson was a fantastic player and a superb professional.

Henke, King of 🤴 Kings.

31 Mar 2021 18:21:56
Lovin your post JFP!

31 Mar 2021 18:44:30
Get on this BuZz 🐝 😂.

31 Mar 2021 18:51:15
If ice man played pro football why did he need to ask how transfers work?

31 Mar 2021 20:07:09
Oh ye have little faith Bhoy1411.

31 Mar 2021 20:33:12
Maybe he was a one man club? Lol.

31 Mar 2021 20:37:31
Not at all but a previous post you asked Ed how transfers work and I would have presumed if you were a pro footballer you would of known how they work. Sorry if I have offended, definitely not my intention.

31 Mar 2021 21:41:05
😂 no offence taken at all Bhoy1411 mate. I stand by my question I have very little knowledge of how transfers work and I’d imagine transfer dealings have possibly changed as time has gone by and I stopped playing professionally in 2003. My last SPL game was indeed against Celtic at Parkhead, a game in which Larsson played.

31 Mar 2021 21:06:21
The kilos chip. Goal v Boa Vista away to take us to final when he one twoed wi defender I Early days remember him linking with Simon Donnelly on right and When cross came in he full horizontal diving header. Into net. King of kings. So thankful got to watch him for 7 years Cheered me up thinking about him 😀 robroy1967.

31 Mar 2021 22:00:07
I think we should respect Ice Man's anonymity guy's HH.

31 Mar 2021 22:11:49
My mate played in that season with Kilmarnock. And indeed in that game!
