The little Swede came to Celtic's rescue with two second half goals to inspire them to victory after Andrius Skerla's first half goal had threatened a major shock.
Larsson refused to take all the plaudits being thrown to him insisting it was a great team performance.
"This is great. We wanted to finish the season on a good note," said Larsson.
"But this is not about me, this is about the team getting a result. Winning today is fantastic.
"Oh I could not have dreamt of a better finish, but it has never been about me it is about the team, the club and everyone involved with the club.
"It has been great the years here and winning is a fantastic way to end."
Larsson's team-mates paid tribute to the Swedish striker for his impact at the club.
"We expected him to go out with a bang and he did just that," said captain Jackie McNamara.
"He was magnificent and deserves all his success."
Neil Lennon admitted it is going to be hard to replace Larsson when he leaves in the summer, saying: "It is going to take a lot of money to replace him. It is unfair to compare him with any other player.
"We might not see his like again."
Alan Thompson echoed the duo's sentiments and was not surprised by Larsson's match-winning performance.
"That's Henrik, that's what he does. We'll miss him," said Thompson.
"It was difficult in the heat but we played well. Dunfermline gave us a tough game."
