Ultimate XI: Vote for Celtic’s best striker of the last 50 years

Throughout the years Celtic have rarely struggled in front of goal with so many candidates to choose from, although it’s hard to look beyond a certain 242 goal Swede.

As a support act to the prolific Swede there are many names that created great memories, scored goals by the barrowload and left with the trophies and medals that they deserved.

Like central defenders the role of the striker, until fairly recently, has been all about partnerships such as Nicholas and McGarvey or Walker and McAvennie from the Centenary season.

There has usually been one figure that has dominated, with Larsson backed up perfectly by John Hartson or Chris Sutton.

Different times have called for different styles but even through some bleak times there has almost always been a striker that you could reasonably expect to put the ball in the back of the net.

Will Moussa Dembele work his way onto this list in years to come?

The team is based on players who have played since that afternoon in Lisbon, the Lions have been left out of contention for this vote.
