Happy Birthday to the King of Kings – where has the time gone?…
Henrik Larsson our Swedish superstar, the one and only King of Kings turns 52 today. It’s been nigh on twenty years since he bid a tearful farewell to Celtic Park and we have never seen a player of his quality since.

Henrik still looks fighting fit and no doubt would still show that god-given talent if he pulled on those boots again even at over half a century old.
Henrik was a sublime player not just for us, but for his nation and every club that had the pleasure of seeing him in their colours, including of course Feyenoord but also among others Barcelona and Manchester United.
He did it at the highest level. The World Cup, the Euros, the Champions league, the Uefa Cup, a tournament where he still holds the record as the highest goal scorer.
The all-time competition top scorer 🙌

I, like many others, was blessed to have seen the King of Kings in the flesh playing for seven seasons for Celtic. He’s undoubtedly the best player I’ve seen grace the Hoops, and it will probably remain that way until I leave this world.
Generations of Celtic supporters had the privilege of seeing the likes of, Jimmy Quinn, Patsy Gallacher Jimmy McGrory, Charlie Tully, Willie Fernie, Jimmy Johnstone, Bobby Murdoch and Kenny Dalglish amongst many other iconic names in the flesh.
I can proudly say I saw Henrik Larsson, Celtic’s Kings of Kings. Many happy returns Henrik. Some birthday tributes to Henrik below which shows just how highly he is regarded across the footballing world.
Just an Ordinary Bhoy
