Celtic forward Sead Haksabanovic has opened up on the meaning behind his goal celebration and revealed who he is closest to in the Parkhead dressing room.

The 23-year-old joined the Hoops from Russian club Rubin Kazan last summer and has scored five goals and provided four assists across 33 appearances.

And now the Montenegro international has explained the dancing celebration that he carries out after scoring.

Speaking to the club's official YouTube channel, he said: "I like to dance a lot. I’d done it a couple of times before I came here. It’s nice to express myself in that way."

Haksabanovic also detailed who he is closest with at Celtic. "There’s a lot of them but as I know Joe Hart and Carl Starfelt from before, I would say one of them," he continued.

"But I have become close to a lot of them here."

Meanwhile, Henrik Larsson has been named on a 25-man panel of former footballers to form the UEFA Football Board.

The Celtic idol has been included in a star-studded line-up to help guide UEFA protocols on a number of matters including VAR and handball.

Larsson is one of three members of the panel with Scottish football experience as well as Robbie Keane and Roberto Martinez.

The Football Board will meet annually - as well as "when needed and necessary" - to discuss football matters with UEFA chiefs.

The agenda for the first meeting will include talks on refereeing matters, such as the UEFA line of intervention, VAR, handball and player behaviour, and competition and medical football matters.

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin commented: "Uefa is delighted to see that the very ones who have shaped the game's history with their talents and philosophy through decades are gathered again around our common goal - to protect the game of football and its essential values. 

"As we always say: Football first!"
