Larsson left Feyenoord for Celtic in 1997 following a contract dispute and Larsson became a legend in the East End of Glasgow scoring 242 goals for Celtic over seven seasons in the Hoops.
The ‘King of Kings’ admitted that he would consider a role in Scotland as he looks to find a return to the game since leaving Helsingborgs last August. Following Duff’s departure as first team coach, there was an opening in the Celtic dugout but it appears that the hopes for this have ended.
Celtic still have the a vacancy in the dugout but it would appear that Larsson will not be filling it.
