Celtic legend Henrik Larsson shows who's boss - brings himself on and scores

Former Celtic and one-time Manchester United striker Henrik Larsson rolled back the years to score in a special friendly game for Helsingborgs.

Henrik Larsson showed that, when it comes to scoring goals, class is permanent after introducing himself off the bench during a friendly in Sweden and promptly finding the back of the net.

The 43-year-old, who turned out for Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United in a fine playing career, is now manager of Helsingborgs.

Overseeing a friendly encounter with Malmo played on their opponents' astro-turf pitch, Larsson couldn't resist the opportunity to get back in amongst the action.

Already 6-1 up following a deluge of goals, the Sweden legend decided to bring himself on after 66 minutes.

Citing a lack of available bodies in his squad, due to international commitments, the Hoops hero nevertheless relished the opportunity to return to the pitch.

And he wasted little time in making an impact too, scoring to cap off a fine 7-1 win.

Speaking to Expressen, Larsson tried to play down the appearance.

“There were not enough people in the squad at all. We have some people on the national team and so we had some people injured, it was not planned, but it was just so,” he said.

Yes, it was fun, but it's not me it's all about.”

Larsson took charge of Helsingborgs back in November 2014, having spent two spells at the club as a player.
