Henrik Larsson has stated that he will be returning ” home” when he takes to the field for a Celtic Foundation game.
The 45-year-old will wear the green and white stripes once again on May 28, this time in aid of charity in a match set to feature fan favourites Larsson and Lubo Moravcik.
The unique event will see Larsson and Moravcik lead out their respective teams which will be filled with former players and celebrities.
Net proceeds of the game will go to the Celtic Foundation as the club is set to mark the 50th anniversary of its greatest achievements.
Ahead of that event, Larsson had this to say upon his return, a message which the Celtic faithful will love.
“It’s like a second home for me,” Larsson told Celtic TV. “That is where I enjoyed the best of my football and where I became the player that I was.
“For me. it is like coming home and I really cannot wait to get on that pitch again.”
👑 "How do you feel about returning to Paradise, Henrik?"

During his career at Parkhead, Larsson made 313 appearances for the Glasgow giants, scoring a magnificent 242 goals.
It is fair to say his career in Scotland won him hero status at Celtic and upon taking the field once again he will receive a standing ovation.
The Sweden international would be mightly impressed with current performances of the Celtic team, in particular, striker Moussa Dembele.
The France under-21 international is the top scorer in Scotland this season after Brendan Rodgers purchased the youngster on a free transfer last summer.
As a result, his goals are going to help the Bhoys lift the Scottish Premiership title in record fashion as they currently have a 25 point lead on their nearest rivals.
