In Celtic’s famous number seven.

Is the hero, Henrik Larsson.

Who wore the famous green & white hoops,
He was the roar in Celtic’s thunder,
Who would fill his empty boots?

The day he walked through Celtic’s door,
And from the year of 1997,
How we watched proud Larsson score.

By the passionate Parkhead faithful,
Were his goals brought many a victory
In the act of a miracle.

The Golden Boot he collected,
And Parkhead would echo his name
When he scored goals for the Celtic.

Honours & awards, he would gather more,
And when he waved farewell to the faithful,
He paraded, League title number four.

His commitment & passion within our souls,
In his last season down at Celtic Park;
His memories were worth a fortune in gold.

As we will look back at his glory,
Were Henrik Larsson, our hero & legend,
Will be forever a part of Celtic’s history.
