A 2-1 win over Dundee United doesn’t begin to tell the full story as grown men suddenly realised that they wouldn’t be watching the King of King’s in action again.
In seven glorious season Larsson rewrote the record books with season 2003/04 as productive as any as Celtic raced to the double of SPL title and the Scottish Cup.
BBC Scotland report:
After starting our Sportscene Classic series with four thrilling Scottish Cup matches, the focus moves to memorable league games this weekend.
With 80 minutes on the clock the game remained goal-less but two moments of magic later and Larsson had raised his Celtic goal total to 240 with two more to come the following week in the Scottish Cup Final.
At the final whistle Larsson was in tears, more than a few Celtic fans will be feeling that way on Friday night as they turn the clock back 16 years.
