HENRIK LARSSON is poised to return to Celtic – to play in Scott Brown’s Testimonial Match.
The Hoops legend has agreed to take part in the showpiece event for the Parkhead skipper when Martin O’Neill brings his Republic of Ireland team on Sunday, May 20 – the day after the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell.
The 32-year-old midfielder, a £4.4million buy from Hibs, will be honoured at the end of his 10th season and Larsson, scorer of 242 goals for the club, will play his part in the gala occasion.
Willie Haughey of the Testimonial Committee said: “It is wonderful that Henrik is now joining in the match.
“It is something he was very keen to do, to show his real appreciation and respect for all Scott has achieved.
“Like Scott, Henrik has delivered phenomenal success to our fans and I’m sure our supporters will be delighted to see such a great Celtic icon grace Paradise once again.”
