Video: Pointless Contestants Win £2250 After Guessing Henrik Larsson

Henrik Larsson is still helping Celtic supporters fulfill their dreams after featuring as an answer on BBC quiz show Pointless.

Contestants Tasha and Jo found themselves within touching distance of the £2250 prize pot and gave Larsson as their answer when they were asked to name a ‘pointless’ goal-scorer from Euro 2000.

Not only was the answer correct due to Larsson’s consolation goal in the 2-1 defeat to Italy but it also turned out to be pointless, meaning the jubilant pair went home with a fat wad of cash.

Remarkably, Tasha revealed afterwards that she had an inkling that a question on the now-retired striker might come up after some priceless advice from her Celtic-daft boyfriend:

Absolutely brilliant, eh?

Larsson almost missed out on the tournament 17 years ago as he was still recovering from a broken leg, but thankfully for Jo and Tasha he recovered in time.

He may have left Celtic in 2004, and retired from football entirely in 2013, it seems Larsson can still do no wrong.
