New Bhoy Lustig inspired by Larsson

Published Add your comment

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."
