Larsson ex­pects Celtic to be­come the in­vin­ci­bles

The Herald - Herald Sport - - LADBROKES PREMIERSHIP -

Celtic leg­end Hen­rik Larsson be­lieves the cur­rent team can achieve some­thing even he could not at the club – go through an en­tire sea­son un­de­feated.

The Swede won a tre­ble, dou­ble, stopped Rangers get­ting to 10 in a row and played in a Euro­pean fi­nal, but even the great sides un­der Martin O’Neill lost the oc­ca­sional do­mes­tic match dur­ing their tro­phy laden era.

It is 13 years ago this week since Larsson be­came Celtic’s third top goalscorer when a goal against Hiber­nian took him be­hind only Park­head icons Bobby Len­nox and Jimmy McGrory on the all-time list.

Larsson re­turns in May to Celtic Park as man­ager in a char­ity game, his old team-mate Lubo Mo­rav­cik will be in the other dugout, and the King of Kings ex­pects the club he still loves to have pulled off some­thing re­mark­able by then.

He said: “I have watched the two Old Firm games this sea­son. Celtic have a good side, the man­ager has done a great job and at this mo­ment Celtic are too good for every­one else.

“They haven’t lost yet this sea­son and I don’t think they will now.”

Hen­rik’s He­roes will take on Lubo’s Leg­ends at Celtic Park on Sun­day, May 28 at 2pm. And the Swede had kind words to say about the Slo­vak.

“He is one of the best I ever played with,” said Larsson. “Still to this day I don’t know whether he was right or left footed. He was so good.”
