It has been a long time since Henrik Larsson did a lap of honour at Celtic Park with his son Jordan in his arms as he celebrated yet another SPL win.

That day in 2004 marked the end of a glittering career in Glasgow for the Swedish striker, and now 12 years later it is the little boy who was in Larsson's arms that day that carries on the family legacy.

Jordan Larsson now plays as a forward for Helsingborgs in Sweden, where he is managed by his father, and the 19-year-old has proved to be a promising talent.

The younger Larsson's performances have reached the stage where he is being linked to moves away from Sweden, but one particular rumour caught the striker's attention.

One sports site tweeted about a potential move to Rangers for Larsson, and given his dad's status as a Celtic legend, it was a story that he was quick to debunk.

The Swedish youngster set the record straight with an emphatic emoji-filled tweet, which shows that the Larsson family are still very much loyal to the Bhoys.
