ROSENBORG caretaker boss Rini Coolen has warned Celtic: “It’s not over yet!”

The Dutchman, who took charge of the Norwegians following last week’s controversial sacking of Kare Ingebrigsten, admitted the Hoops had been superior in their 3-1 Champions League qualifying win at Parkhead last night.

That sets up the second round tie for an exciting and dramatic return in Trondheim on Wednesday – and Coolen insisted his team should not be ruled out.

He said: “Celtic were the better team and deserved to win, no doubt about that.

“We will not give up, though. It will be very difficult, very tough. Celtic are at a different level, but that doesn’t mean a team wins.

“We are at home and play in front of our crowd which will help us a lot, so we will not give up and you never know.”

The Hoops won 1-0 at the same venue in the qualifier last season following a goalless draw in Glasgow.

The winners will meet Greek champions AEK Athens in the third round qualifier before making the final step towards the group stages.
