Watch: Keano and Henrik roll back the years

Manchester United heroes like Roy Keane faced off with Parkhead idols in Glasgow last night. And Anthony from The Royle Family too.

THERE WAS A host of old, familiar faces on show at Celtic Park last night as a collection of Hoops ‘legends’ saw off their Manchester United counterparts, 5-2.

Henrik Larsson turned back the clock to grab a hat-trick in front of 50,000-plus fans. The proceeds of the charity game will go to Oxfam’s East Africa charity appeal.

The home squad included such Paradise luminaries as  current manager Neil Lennon, John Hartson, Chris Sutton, Lubo Moravcik and Alan Thompson.

The side, which was coached by Martin O’Neill, also included – shriek – Hollywood film actor Gerard Butler and our own former boxer Steve Collins.
