CELTIC will face Rosenborg for the fourth time this season when they meet in the crucial Europa League Group B encounter in Trondheim tonight.

So far the Hoops have won twice – 3-1 and 1-0 in Glasgow – and drawn 0-0 away. This evening promises to be another test against the team that have just been crowned Norwegian champions for the fourth successive season.
