CELTIC legend Henrik Larsson has quit as Head Coach of Helsingborgs after the club’s relegation from the Swedish top flight.

The team’s 23-year stay in Allsvenskan came to an end on Sunday when they lost 2-1 to Halmstads.

Larsson’s 19-year-old son Jordan, who scored his side’s goal in the 3-2 aggregate play-off defeat, was assaulted by masked fans after the final whistle.

Fans also attempted to confront 45-year-old Larsson, who had been team boss since January 2015.

“Myself, the board, Henrik Larsson and the rest of the leadership team, together with the players, in solidarity bear the responsibility for this relegation,” club director Mats-Ola Schulze said in a statement.

“I, together with the board, want to thank Henrik for the comprehensive restructuring that has been done in the football organisation during 2015 and 2016.”

Larsson had earlier insisted he had no intention of resigning from his post.
