Manager Neil Lennon has played down speculation linking legendary forward Henrik Larsson with a return to Celtic Park.

"Knowing Henrik, he wouldn't want to be number two to anybody, let alone me!" - Neil Lennon
It follows fellow Swede Johan Mjallby announcing he will be relinquishing his assistant manager role with the club at
the end of the season. Larsson previously struck 243 goals during a seven-year
period at Celtic from 1997.

"Knowing Henrik, he wouldn't want to be number two to anybody, let alone me!," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "I'm very sorry to see him [Mjallby] go. He's been here with me since day one and he's had a huge influence on everything that we've done here for the last four years.

"But he has his own ambitions. He's been away from his family now for quite a while and that can take its toll," he added. "We wish him well in everything that he does. I'm sure he'll be a success at whatever he puts his hand to."

The UK's Tightest Derby Clashes - 2017

Ever wondered which local derby in the United Kingdom is the most closely contested?

Rodgers impressed with depth

Manager Brendan Rodgers said the latest victory against Dundee in the Scottish League Cup served to highlight the depth of his available squad.

Dundee 0 Celtic 4

Holders Celtic moved into the Scottish League Cup semi-finals with a 4-0 victory against Dundee at Dens Park.

The always lively Scott Sinclair's penalty earned them a first-half lead improved by James Forrest just prior to the break.

However, the Hoops were forced to wait until very late in the contest before substitute Callum McGregor and Forrest (again) added further goals.

Defender Dedryck Boyata was passed fit to play following a knee injury that had ruled him out so far
