Some Celtic fans have been reacting positively to a tweet that was recently posted by the Hoops’ official Twitter account which shared footage of “a superb Hoops display to clinch the title 18 years ago”.
Celtic’s recent tweet features footage of the Hoops’ 5-1 win over Livingston from the sixth of April 2002, a game which saw Hoops legend Henrik Larsson bag a hat-trick, helping the club to make it “two championships out of two under Martin O’Neill’s stewardship”, as stated by the BBC in their post-match report of this game.
This footage of a classic Hoops win has drawn the attention of some Celtic fans who have been reminiscing fondly over this victory that allowed them to clinch the 2001/02 SPL title.
In addition to scoring a hat-trick to help Celtic clinch the league title, Larsson can be seen chanting along with the Celtic supporters towards the end of this footage, as he joins his teammates in celebrating their title win. Some Celtic supporters have been reacting positively to Larsson’s celebrations in this footage, with one Hoops fan claiming that Larsson’s chanting is “the best thing about this video”.
His hat-trick in this game helped the former Sweden international to finish the 2001/02 season as the SPL’s top goalscorer. Larsson managed to bag a total of 29 league goals that term, 10 goals more than any other player managed to score in the SPL that season.
As a result of his impressive goalscoring record for the Hoops that term, it may be understandable why some Celtic fans have been sharing some praise for Larsson in response to this footage.
