A short spell at Celtic

Camara's time at Celtic was disappointing for the Celtic fans and management, after costing one million pounds ($1.7M US) just to get him in on loan for the start of the 2004-2005 season. He failed to impress, despite tremendous pace, managing just six goals from twelve starts and six substitute appearances, he was never going to replace fan's favourite Henrik Larsson who had departed just prior to his signing, and much antipathy from the fans was due to Camara's claims in the press that he would replace Larsson, and Camara requested Larsson's squad number, 7, which he had had at a previous club as well, but was instead given no. 27. Was sent back to Wolves during the January 2005 transfer window despite being contracted for longer, but Henri's 'ambition' to be named African Footballer of the Year meant he refused to play for the then relegated Wolves again and went on strike in order to engineer a move away.

Henri The Rat

While at Wolves Camara was a fans favourite and in spite of a very poor start in Wolves colours he eventually found the back of the net with some consistency and was named the fans Player of the Year. He then turned his back on the club saying he was not prepared to play outside of the top division and went on strike in order to force a move away from Wolves[1]. He thus went from hero to zero in the eyes of many Wolves fans who gave him the nickname "Henri The Rat".
