ROSENBORG caretaker boss Rini Coolen has warned Celtic he is planning a few surprises for the Champions League qualifying return in Trondheim on Wednesday.

The Norwegians are trailing 3-1 from last week’s first leg at Parkhead where they stunned Brendan Rodgers’ men by taking a 15th-minute lead through defender Birger Meling.

Coolen, who was swiftly asked to step up after the Norwegians sacked previous gaffer Kare Ingebrigsten, said: “I’ve had more time to think about the game on this occasion because it was very busy ahead of the first leg.

“We have to decide whether to play the same or make changes.

“The main focus is on playing Celtic and finding a way to win the game. We will assess the players to see how they are.

“This time we have Erik Botheim back, who was away for the first leg with Norway at the European Under-19s Finals.

“Matthias Vilhjalmsson is also getting fitter after being out for 10 months. He is a very important member of the squad and he is an option, too.”
