Mjallby confirmed last week that he will be leaving Celtic at the end of the season following four years as Neil Lennon's No.2 at Parkhead.

The Swede also made almost 200 appearances during six years as a Celtic player and he has been strongly linked with a return to his homeland.

The 43-year-old spent a large part of his playing career with AIK, but the former centre-half has insisted that he has not yet got anything lined up for the summer.

"Many believed the reason I was leaving was to return home but it is not the truth," said Mjallby in the Daily Record.

"My kids are old enough now and it has worked well here in Scotland because I have always found the time to go home and take a few days off when we had the international break.

"That has nothing to do with my decision. I just want to try something different after 10 years of my life here in Glasgow.

"I have a few weeks to sort out what I want to do but I have not decided I will work in Sweden.

"I 100 per cent do not have a job lined up.

"AIK will always be special and as soon as I announced I was leaving people assumed I would go there even though they have good people in their management team.

"It is not true and makes me angry."
