Rogne set to leave Celtic

By Football News



Celtic defender Thomas Rogne believes it is likely he will leave the Scottish Premier League champions in the off-season.

The Norwegian, who is able to exit Celtic Park for nothing when his contract expires in three weeks' time, was offered a new deal by the club in February, but he turned it down.

And after suffering with several injuries during his time in Scotland, he admits that it is probable he will depart the club following his participation at the European Under-21 Championship.

Having joined Neil Lennon's side in January 2010, Rogne also did not rule out a venture to a new country, after three-and-a-half years on British soil.

"I still have a month left on my contract so I haven't left yet but it seems that way," he said.

"I am just here (in Israel) to enjoy these Euros, play with my friends and then we will see what will happen afterwards.

"I am not sure about interest from Britain.

"I've got no idea, my focus is on Norway and that is all I am thinking about."

The centre-back started just eight games for Celtic in the league this season, as they cruised to the SPL title.
