thumbnail Hello,

The Swede is full of admiration for the atmosphere at Celtic Park and has hinted that he could move to Glasgow before he retires

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted at a desire to play for Celtic before the end of his career.

The Scottish club was the home of the 32-year-old's fellow Swede Henrik Larsson and the former AC Milan striker has voiced his admiration for the famous atmosphere at Parkhead.

"Celtic is a club with a big tradition and a place any top player would want to end their career," he is quoted as saying by the Scottish Sun.

"How could I say I wouldn't want to play for those fans every week?

"Henrik was good enough to play for any team in Europe. But after playing at Celtic Park it is easy to understand why he chose to stay there for so long."

Responding to the link, Celtic boss Neil Lennon jovially told BBC Sport: "He'd have to play well to get in our team.

"It's one of those stories - I don't know how true it is - but it would be wonderful if we could get that type of player to the club.

"I think that's a long way off yet."

Ibrahimovic has scored 15 goals in 18 Ligue 1 appearances for PSG this season.
