THE ABOVE PHOTO is Henrik Larsson celebrating Celtic’s 2004 SPL title with his son Jordan at Parkhead. Eleven years later and while Larsson’s son isn’t quite all grown up just yet, he seems to have taken after his dad on the football pitch.

The elder Larsson currently manages Helsingborgs in Sweden and his 17-year-old son plays with the club as a striker.

Larsson famously scored 242 goals for Celtic during his seven-season stay in Glasgow and judging by his son’s finish in yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Syrianska in the Swedish Cup, the legendary striker’s offspring will probably find the net regularly over the next few years.
