Rosenborg have sacked their manager Kåre Ingebrigtsen just a week before Celtic play them in the Champions League.
The Norwegian boss led his side to a dramatic 3-2 aggregate victory over Icelandic side Valur last night, thanks in a large part to this controversial penalty decision.
Rosenborg lost the first leg 1-0 in Iceland and were heading for a humiliating first round exit on away goals as they led just 2-1 late on last night.
But Nicklas Bendtner’s injury time penalty got the players out of jail – just not the manager.
That’s because the Norwegian champions have today announced they’ve sacked Ingebrigtsen, paving the way for a new man to take control ahead of next week’s trip to Glasgow for the first leg.
The news was confirmed on Twitter a short time ago:

We’ve no idea currently who Rosenborg intend on putting in charge of the first team, but you have to consider this news as a boost for Celtic going into their tie.
Brendan Rodgers’ men advanced to the next round after beating Armenians Alashkert 6-0 on aggregate.
