    Yep.....hence why i never want to see this guy near our club again in my opinion.

    He was the King of Kings and the best foreign player to ever grace Scotland.

    Legendary isnt even enough to desribe this guy.

    Do I * want Henrik to come back and have a bad term as manager, he should be remembered for what he gave us on the pitch and nothing else :50:

    I disagree, he’s currently assistant manager at Barcelona, if he stays there for a few years and learns his trade at the highest level then we should rightfully consider him imo.

    This isn’t Lennon Mk2, Larsson is learning his trade the correct way and is a more dignified man anyway meaning if things weren’t working out he’d step aside.

    A part of me really agrees: wouldn’t like to take the risk with his legacy.

    On the other hand, that’s just the thing though: this man’s Celtic legacy is such that it could never be jeopardised. Even if things went Pete Tong, he would bow out gracefully, with maximum respect for the support, and anything negative on the pitch would be forgotten in a heartbeat.

    That’s the difference between a star and an absolute icon.

    Where you about 3 months ago? The * abuse Lennon got was a disgrace,why would it be any different to Larsson? If he lost league titles and cups?

    You cant pick and choose who you want to abuse or not for not winning you a title....at the end of the day you are paid to be a manager,you live and die by not winning silverware.....and henke would be no different,hence why i would never want to see his legacy in pieces if it went wrong here.

    Look at Fat Sally and what heppened over their years ago....hes a fat no mark to them

    Our board are scummy * that dont give a *,they would throw Larsson under the bus the same as others......This guy is Legendary and it stays that way for life.

    That one line sort of proves my entire point, mate. He’s legendary, and nothing that could happen between him and this ridiculous board could change that, unless all of our fans are totally shallow.

    I loved Lenny, but he responded to being thrown under the bus by throwing the fans under too. Henrik never would. That’s the difference.

    Agree generally that Lennon didn’t help himself this season. I could tolerate bad performances leading to a sacking, but the incredulous way he treated anyone questioning his time here or ability really damaged his reputation.

    Would never want to see Henrik back as a manager. Happy to take his place as his namesake to ensure he preserves his legendary status.

    Exactly....can you imagine if he lost 3 new firm games in a row and out a cup? He would be subject to abuse just like Lennon,getting called all sorts of horrific *.

    Good amount of fans prob never even seen Henke play to understand and therefore would give a * about the abuse.

    Hes done this club proud,stayed way over his years and was loyal.....He stays a legend.

    I hope he goes to Dortmund and bigger,he deserves it.

    Henke is a legend , used to car share with Lambert , always had time to sign tops and chat to the fans , he went at the right time at the top of his career.
