Celtic Legend Primed For Possible Return To Parkhead

Celtic Legend Primed For Possible Return To Parkhead

Henrik Larsson could be set to make a remarkable return to Parkhead this summer, with Neil Lennon understood to be considering his former teammate for a role on his coaching ticket.

Ahead of making a push for a ninth consecutive title next season, the Scottish Sun claim the Swede is one of a number of names on Lennon's list. Johan Mjallby, another former Celtic player, is also being considered by the 47-year-old.

Lennon was made manager on a permanent basis, having accepted a 12-month rolling contract, last week after completing the momentous treble-treble.

Larsson spent seven years with the Glaswegian outfit in his pomp, scoring 242 goals before joining Barcelona in 2004. Larsson's role, however, is not expected to affect Damien Duff's role as first-team coach.

Meanwhile, John Kennedy will remain the assistant manager and Stevie Woods will be staying around as goalkeeping coach.

The former striker has dabbled in football management but hasn't received as much success as his former teammate, who is currently enjoying his second stint as manager of the Hoops. Larsson's experiences in football management, in contrast to Lennon's, have all come in his homeland.
