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.
