FORMER Celtic boss Ronny Deila has been linked with the Norwegian international manager’s job.
Current gaffer Per-Mathias Hogmo is under mounting pressure with the nation losing both their opening World Cup qualifiers.
The Norwegians were walloped 3-0 at home by Germany and followed that up with a 1-0 defeat in Azerbaijan. They now face a home tie against the minnows of San Marino tomorrow night.
Deila, former Manchester United star Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and Stale Solbakken are the three names being mentioned as a possible successor to the floundering Hogmo.
The former Hoops manager left Celtic at the end of the season following two turbulent years at the club, winning the Premiership twice and a League Cup.
Failure to make an impact in Europe led to the dismissal of the ex-Stromsgodset coach.
Deila is due to take charge of struggling Norwegian club side Valerenga in January.
His former European foe Age Hareide, who led Malmo to a shock Champions League qualifying win over Celtic last season, is now in charge of the Denmark international team and has tipped former Wolves chief Solbakken to get the job if Hogmo is removed.
He said: “Stale Solbakken has done a fantastic job with FC Copenhagen. If he wants it, Norway should take him, definitely.
“Look at the work he has done in Copenhagen. He brought them back again, has been accomplished in the transfer market and built a team that is very functional and strong.”
