Watch: Emotional Henrik Larsson Hydro Moment




A host of legends were in attendance last night for the 20th anniversary of the Celtic Player of the Year awards.

The Hydro was sold out and decked in green and white for an evening that was made all the sweeter by the Bhoys’ Glasgow derby victory on Saturday.

Several awards were dished out with Matt O’Riley completing a clean sweep of Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year, and Young Player of the Year.

Along with the Danish midfielder, numerous other Celts picked up accolades but perhaps the most notable to do so was Henrik Larsson.

The legendary striker made an appearance on Sunday evening and was welcomed on stage – as one would expect – with a raucous cheer.

He picked the Outstanding Contribution award for his services to Celtic and when he headed up on stage to pick up the prize, the fans serenaded him with his ‘You are my Larsson, my Henrik Larsson’ song.

The Hydro was bouncing, and it was the loudest the supporters were all evening. On stage, Larsson was taken aback by the reception he received, and indeed, rather emotional:

A true Celtic great, Larsson thoroughly deserved his award and greeting from the Celtic supporters last night.

He adores the club, and that was no more coherent than when he teared up as over 11,000 fans chanted his name.
