Barcelona are clearly pretty excited about having Henrik Larsson back at the club – judging by a social media post.

The Catalan giants took to Twitter, in front of 33 million followers, to share a brilliant two minute video featuring Larsson’s finest moments of his Nou Camp playing career.

The video features Larsson’s final comment in a Barca shirt (translated): “Long live Barca, long live Catalonia” as well as his game-changing impact in the 2006 Champions League final.

The video also included an awkward moment, from a Celtic point of view, as Larsson netted against us in a European game in 2004.

In other news, Chris Sutton has given his verdict on Celtic’s potential move for Shane Duffy.
