The job has only been available for a few days and already names are being put forward as potential managers of the Ewood Park outfit.
Steve Kean resigned last week, claiming his position had become “untenable” at the Championship side.
Larsson was something of a legend at Celtic, he was with them for seven years and in that time found the net 174 times, in 2009 he took up his first coaching roll in Sweden for second tier club Landskrona BoIS.
Larsson, 41, would love a return to British football and the Championship is a good start for him.
The major downfall of this candidate is that if he was to do well at Rovers, it would not be long before Celtic came calling for his services.
