“Celtic were superior but we won’t give up,” Rosenborg boss

ROSENBORG’S new manager Rini Coolen has told Celtic that he isn’t ready to throw in the towel just yet.

The Dutchman, who took charge of the Norwegians following the controversial sacking of Kare Ingebrigsten, admitted that Celtic had been superior in their 3-1 Champions League qualifying win last night.

The away goal sets up the second round tie for an exciting and dramatic return in Trondheim on Wednesday – and Coolen believes his side can win through.

“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.”
