Photo Of The Day: Henrik Larsson Mid-Flight

Today’s photo of the day brings you an image from just over 20 years ago, and shows Henrik Larsson in mid-flight as he diving headers the ball. It is such a typical shot of the Swede who was always prepared to put his body on the line.

Larsson scored two cracking goals in the match; a 3-3 draw in October 2002. The first was a sensational volley, after he controlled the ball and spun in an instant. The second was a marvelous powerful header from considerable distance.

What a privilege it was to watch the King in action for a magnificent seven years.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up on the English south coast with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic during the Martin O'Neill era. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were previously sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are now available on Amazon.
