Celtic fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest quotes from Jordan Larsson, the son of former Hoops striker Henrik Larsson. 

This comes after Celtic news Twitter account @celticbible shared a post on their page relaying comments made by Larsson in a recent interview with RT Sport.

Which club did Brown join Celtic from?

During the interview, Larsson had this to say about Celtic and his connection to the club.

He said: “For me, Celtic will always have a special place in my heart, not that I’ve played there in that sense, but it was the first place where I saw football as a young kid going with my mother to see games when my father was playing.”

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Celtic fans who were quick to share their thoughts on these comments from the 23-year-old.

So, what did these Celtic fans make of this post?

Some Hoops fans suggested the club should try and sign the striker.

“Get him in”

@MarkEdgar34

“Bring him home”

@GaryKe11y

“There’s got to be something in there somewhere….!!!:”

@stephenjbyrne

Others were more sceptical of a potential transfer move for Larsson.

“The current setup at Parkhead doesnt have the imagination to try and sign this lad.”

@EdwardNashton10

“similar to Jordi Cruyff, fella had ability but was constantly compared to his Dad”

@MarkNesbitt1888

“If Celtic were to sign him everyone would compare him to the King 7 That wouldn’t be fare on Jordan he’s his own man”

@Brian13878614

“Pay the money”

“Tears in my eyes”
@dmc_dcfc

Larsson currently plays for Russian club Spartak Moscow after signing to them back in August 2019 for a fee of £3.6 million. Since then, the striker, who is currently valued at £5.85 million, has made 49 appearances for the club in which he has managed to score 18 goals and provide eight assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Would you like to see Jordan Larsson sign to Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that the idea of Celtic signing Larsson has completely split this group of Hoops fans.

In our view, with Larsson having scored eight goals in 19 league games so far this season, this shows that he could well be a useful addition to Neil Lennon’s squad because of his attacking prowess in front of goal.
