Larsson reports dismissed

Swedish club Falkenbergs have insisted there has been no approach from Celtic for manager Henrik Larsson.

Neil Lennon has been linked with a move away from Celtic and reports in Scotland had suggested that Celtic were interested in appointing Larsson.

Larsson enjoyed a successful spell at Parkhead as a player and has gained some coaching experience in his native Sweden over the past few years but, after only appointing the 42-year-old at the start of the 2014 Allsvenskan season, Falkenbergs have no intention of letting him go.

Sporting director Hakan Nilsson told the Daily Record: "There has been no contact from Celtic.

"There may be a lot of rumours in Scotland but nobody is talking about it in Sweden. I talk to Henrik every day but we have not spoken about the Celtic job.

"There are some clubs who are interested in Henrik but there has been nothing at all from Celtic.

"He is under contract with Falkenbergs and the only thing we are discussing right now is our plans for this season."
