A Henrik Masterpiece

A portrait of former Celtic striker Henrik Larsson has been snapped up for GBP 40,000.

Entrepreneur Willie Haughey splashed out on the piece by artist Peter Howson on Saturday night.

The money will be split between war artist Howson's Third Step charity and Larsson's charities.

Rocker Rod Stewart's girl friend Penny Lancaster, who went to the Entrepreneurial Exchange Ball dressed as singer Cher, also bought a print of the painting for GBP 10,000.

It was the second print of the painting for Celtic fan Rod, who turned-up in leopard skin tight pants as a 70s 'version' of himself at the fancy dress event.

Howson said that he was delighted at the price the oil painting received.

'It is what we hoped and I am delighted the money will help so many people.

'Henrik has scored again - this time for good causes.'
