Celtic new boy Mikael Lustig revealed he caught the Parkhead bug by watching fellow countryman Henrik Larsson play in the hoops.

The Sweden defender, 25, will officially become a Celtic player on Sunday after his transfer to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders was completed on Friday.

Lustig, who agreed a three-and-a-half-year contract in November after leaving Norwegian side Rosenborg, almost inevitably referenced legend Larsson, who starred at the Parkhead club between 1997 and 2004, saying: "Henrik Larsson put Celtic on the map in Sweden."
