£650k was the fee that Wim Jansen paid Feyenoord in 1997 and it is fair to say that this represents one of the best pieces of transfer business in modern times.
If you have 15 minutes and would like to remise over the King of Kings’ time in Paradise, all 242 goals feature in the brilliant video below.
Hopefully we can see Henrik back at Celtic Park some day in some capacity as he truly was one of the best players to grace the surface at Paradise. Many Happy returns Henrik.
