Celtic plan Larsson send-off

Henrik Larsson is set to collect 1m from a farewell match at Celtic Park at the end of the season.

The high-scoring Swedish striker will leave Scotland after seven successful seasons at Celtic.

"Discussions have begun regarding a possible farewell match for Henrik," a club insider told the Daily Record.

"If it goes ahead I'm sure many Celtic fans will want to pay homage to one of the greatest players to pull on the Hoops.''

Meanwhile, Larsson is fed up with the speculation surrounding his future and issued an unlikely threat to quit football altogether in the summer.

I might quit football after this season and move home to Helsingborg

Larsson has been repeatedly linked with moves to the English Premiership and Barcelona.

But he insists he is not willing to speak to interested clubs until the end of the season - and could just as easily decide to return to his home-town instead.

Larsson told Swedish newspaper Expressen: "I might quit football after this season and move home to Helsingborg.

"That's as probable as me deciding to keep playing. This guessing game is just annoying.

"I will not get in contact with other teams. Everything has to go through my agent and we will agree what will happen when my contract with Celtic runs out."
