Jordan Larsson, the son of Celtic legend Henrik Larsson, has taken to Twitter to shoot down any suggestion of him signing for Rangers.

Swedish hero Henrik Larsson wrote himself into Celtic folklore, smashing 242 goals in 313 games for the Bhoys having signed from Feyenoord back in 1997.

Larsson may have moved on to play for Barcelona, Helsingborgs and Manchester United, but he remains a firm fan favourite at Celtic Park having scored so many goals in the famous green and white hoops.

Now manager, the 44-year-old is in charge of Helsingborgs - and he's even managing his own son, Jordan, who also plays as a striker.

General view before the match

Jordan Larsson, 19, was born just a month before his father's move to Celtic, and has hit eight goals in 46 games for Helsingborgs, emerging as one of the top young talents in Swedish football.

Bizarrely, rumours on Twitter over the last 24 hours have suggested that the teenager could be on his way to Rangers, in a move which would stun many, given his father's connections to Old Firm rivals Celtic.

The striker seemingly caught wind of the speculation, and took to Twitter to give an emphatic response to any chance of a move to Ibrox.

Larsson simply responded with 'Are you having a laugh?' at the mere thought of signing for Rangers - a response which will delight Celtic fans and show that he really is his father's son.
