Exclusive: Pundit makes huge claim about Henrik Larsson and Celtic

Speaking exclusively to FootballFanCast, Rob Lee has touted Henrik Larsson as a potential contender to replace Neil Lennon as Celtic boss.

The Hoops are in the midst of a hugely troubling season, already 13 points behind rivals Rangers as their quest for a tenth successive Scottish league title appears to be going up in smoke.

That’s naturally led to speculation about Lennon’s long-term future at the club, and the potential names that could be considered to replace him in the dugout.

Who is the only player to have played in the World Cup, Champions League, UEFA Cup, Intertoto Cup, all four levels of English league football and non-league?

Lee – best known for playing over 300 times for Newcastle and 21 times for England – claimed that along with someone like former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, Larsson could be someone for the Bhoys to think about.

He said: “Henrik Larsson’s a legend, [an] absolute legend there.”

Would you like to see Henrik Larsson become Celtic's new boss?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

With over 200 games played for the club, and a ridiculous total of 175 goals scored, Larsson is a true Celtic icon for his time at Parkhead. The Swede is currently learning his trade as assistant manager to Ronald Koeman at Barcelona, and it remains to be seen whether he would leave such a high-profile position to try and rescue his former side.

If he does, you better believe that Celtic Park will be absolutely rocking at seeing the king return home.
