HENRIK Larsson is set to pull on a Celtic jersey again next month when he takes part in Scott Brown's testimonial.

The Hoops skipper will be honoured at the end of his 10th season at the club with a game against the Republic of Ireland on 20 May, and the Swede was confirmed for the clash on Monday.

Larsson scored 242 goals for Celtic during seven trophy-laden seasons at the club, where he won four league titles, two Scottish Cups and two League Cups as well as leading them to the final of the UEFA Cup.

He will be up against his former manager Martin O'Neill at Celtic Park, who is currently in charge of Ireland. 

Willie Haughey of the Testimonial Committee said: "It is wonderful that Henrik is now joining in the match.

"It is something he was very keen to do, to show his real appreciation and respect for all Scott has achieved.

"Like Scott, Henrik has delivered phenomenal success to our fans and I'm sure our supporters will be delighted to see such a great Celtic icon grace Paradise once again."
