Video: Stiliyan Petrov Rolls Back Years With Superb Dinked Goal Over Artur Boruc

Stiliyan Petrov rolled back the years this afternoon by scoring a beautiful dinked goal at Celtic Park.

The Bulgarian is back in Hoops today as he plays in a Henrik’s Heroes v Lubo’s Legends charity match in front of 60,000 fans.

And he was back in amongst the goals, latching on to an Alan Thompson ball over the top to cooly dink over Boruc in goal:

How good is that?

It’s brilliant to see Petrov looking in such good condition considering his battle with cancer over recent years.

The former Aston Villa man is now all clear of Leukemia and has been back playing Sunday League Football in an effort to get fit. He even joined Villa during pre-season at the beginning of this campaign.

So you can understand his goal going down very well with supporters.

Petrov is joined by a host of former Hoops stars in the game, including Larsson, Moravcik, John Hartson, Neil Lennon and Jackie McNamara.
