OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has been reappointed as Molde’s manager on the eve of the club’s Europa League clash against Celtic.

The former Manchester United striker was previously in charge during 2011 and 2014 before leaving for a disastrous and short-lived stint at Cardiff City.
He couldn’t prevent the Welsh club’s relegation from the top flight and was sacked just over a year ago after a mere eight months at the helm.
Solskjaer managed just three wins during the spell in the Premier League and only two from the first six games in the Championship before the axe fell following a 4-2 hammering at home from Norwich City..

The 42-year-old has agreed a three-and-a-half years contract and is now back with a side he steered to successive league titles and a Cup success and will be in the dug-out when the Hoops visit the Aker Stadion tomorrow night.

Solskjaer replaces interim boss Erling Moe, who has looked after the first team since August and has taken the minnows to four points in the Europa League Group A with a 3-1 win over Fenerbahce and a 1-1 draw with Ajax..

The former Norwegian international began his coaching career in charge of Manchester United’s reserve side in 2008 and led them until 2011 before taking over at Molde, where he had also played before moving to Old Trafford in 1996.
