Jordan Larsson scores goal for Helsingborg v... by futbolvideoz

There is no doubt who Celtic's greatest player in recent memory has to be, Swedish striker Henrik Larsson. The one-time dreadlocked attacker arrived at the Glasgow club in 1997 from Dutch side Feyenoord.

He went on to score an incredible 242 goals for the club in 313 games before moving on to join Spanish giants Barcelona in 2004.

Nowadays the former goal machine is in management, at his beloved Helsingborgs IF. One of his current top talents is a 17-year-old forward who goes by the name Jordan Larsson. Yes, it is his son.

And yesterday, in a game between Helsingborgs and Syrianska in the Svenska Cupen, he scored a tremendous goal in the fifth minute of the game.

It was his third goal for the club and undoubtedly his best. He twisted and turned around the opposing defence, before nonchalantly bending in a long range strike into the top corner in some style.

It was certainly a goal that would have made his old man extremely proud.

And who knows? If he can continue to impress and improve he may follow in the footsteps of his dad and make a move to Celtic one day.
