Current Hibs boss Neil Lennon was also involved in the entertainment, though he may wish to forget his afternoon after being sick on the field.

Henrik’s heroes stormed out to a 5-1 lead thanks to a hat-trick from the Swedish legend, along with goals from Petrov and Brattbakk.

Kris Commons netted for their opponents before captain Lubomir Moravcik pulled another one back in the second half.

Celtic also paraded the three pieces of silverware captured this season after the current squad clinched the treble with victory over Aberdeen at Hampden the day prior.

Proceeds from the match went towards the Celtic Foundation programme.
