Henrik Larsson
Henrik Larsson: The former Celtic striker Henrik Larsson explains to Murdo and Gordon that it was an easy decision to come to Scotland, because the Glasgow club were the only team interested in him.

And, discussing his managerial spell at Hibernian, he singles out three particular players as among the greatest ever to play for the Easter Road club.
