Video: Celtic legend Henrik Larsson crops up on Coronation Street

Celtic legend Henrik Larsson had cropped up in Coronation Street. Stalwart of the soap opera, Steve McDonald, named The King of Kings as his favourite player.

In his time at Celtic, Larsson scored 242 goals going from stopping the ten in 1998 before bowing out as a Scottish Champion. They don’t make many like Henrik these days. Despite his stature, he could jump well above central defenders and a nip of pace to take him beyond many a defender. The quality that he had in front of goal speaks for itself given the sheer amount of goals that he scored.

Despite the riches that a player of his class could have demanded south of the border, Larsson stayed loyal to Celtic as he and his family were settled. He proved that he was different class in his final match for Barcelona in 2006, when he came on as a substitute in Paris during the Champions League final and got two assists as Barca came from behind to beat Arsenal.

Perhaps, though, the Corrie star is referencing his brief cameo as a United player, where he earned an honorary Premier League medal such was his contribution.
