TROUBLED Rosenborg are facing even more turmoil ahead of the trip to Parkhead for their Champions League qualifier against Celtic.

The Norwegians could be sued by Kare Ingebrigtsen, the manager they sacked last week following the 3-2 aggregate win over Iceland’s Valur to set up the first leg against Brendan Rodgers’ men on Wednesday.

Gunnar-Martin Kjenner, the country’s top sports lawyer, has suggested the club’s former gaffer could take them to court for unfair dismissal.

And Teddy Moen, the Head of the Manager’s Association, also voiced disapproval of the manager’s treatment.

Kjenner, who insists 
Ingebrigtsen has cause for
 taking legal action, said: “It is terribly primitive.

“It’s completely contrary to the rules, to verbally
 dismiss somebody over a table as Rosenborg did.

“Kare has delivered at Rosenborg, so you have to ask what are the reasons?

“The desire for another coach is not a reason. To be dismissed, it requires a gross breach.”

And Moen added: “This has been a shock to us and the expectations we have for our members is higher than this.

“Rosenborg don’t score very high here. We will look at Kare’s and his assistant Erik Hoftun’s contracts because they’ve asked us to do that for them.”

New Head Coach Rini Coolen held clear-the-air talks with the players yesterday, as CQN reported.

The playing staff were outraged at the news of Ingebrigtsen’s sacking, but the Ducthman is coping to get things under control before they arrive in Glasgow.
