Celtic legend Henrik Larsson has applied for the vacant managerial role at Livingston, according to the Daily Record.

Despite taking Livingston to the Premiership, David Hopkin decided not to extend his contract at the club, saying he was looking for a new challenge and as such, the West Lothian club are looking for a replacement.

Larsson, who has been out of management for two years, has put his name into the hat and will reportedly be added to The Lions’ shortlist.

The Record report that there are concerns from Livingston about the wage and transfer budget that Larsson would want should he take the job, but they’ve had initial conversations with him and are likely to follow those up over the coming days.

Larsson’s former strike partner at Celtic, John Hartson, had been liked with taking over at Livingston but he’s reportedly out of the running.

If Larsson does get appointed, he’ll be tasked with trying to get one over on his former club when the two sides meet next season.
