Club career


Rogne started his career with Norwegian club Stabæk. He missed the entire 2008 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in a pre-season friendly against Russian side Krylia Sovetov in La Manga. [2] He played for Stabæk in UEFA Champions League qualifying matches against Copenhagen [2] and Valencia, [3] and also represented the club in the Europa League. [4]


Rogne signed for Celtic on 20 January 2010, [5] and joined on a three and a half-year contract. [6] Rogne was given the number 25 shirt. [7]

On 10 February 2010, Rogne made his Celtic debut coming on as a substitute for Glenn Loovens in a 2–0 home win against Hearts in the SPL. [8] He made his first start for Celtic at home against Dundee United in a 1–0 victory on 20 February 2010, [3] he played very well and impressed the coach Tony Mowbray. [9] Rogne impressed against Rangers on 28 February 2010 [10] but was taken off due to a hamstring injury. [11] He returned two months later in an away game against Dundee United [12] but once again had to leave the field early through injury. [13]

Rogne made his first competitive start of the 2010–11 season for Celtic against St Johnstone in a 3–0 win. [14] [15] In the following game he was sent off for a professional foul against Aberdeen. [16] [17] Despite this, Celtic went on to win the game by a record-breaking 9–0 score. [17] He scored his first goal for Celtic in a 1–1 draw against Kilmarnock in December 2010. [18] Rogne won many plaudits for his performance as Celtic beat Rangers 2–0 at Ibrox in the 2011 New Year derby. [19] [20] [21] He scored his second goal for Celtic against Aberdeen in their 4–1 League Cup semi-final win on 29 January 2011. [22] Rogne took part in his first major Cup Final on 20 March 2011 when Celtic played Rangers in the Scottish League Cup Final, but they lost 2–1. [23] An injury in May sidelined Rogne for the rest of the season. [24]

Injury kept Rogne out of the Celtic side for the first few months of the following season. [24] He returned to the Celtic first team in October 2011 in their League Cup quarter-final tie against Hibernian. [24] Rogne continued to struggle with a series of minor injuries, but nevertheless played well in the majority of his sporadic appearances, having kept a clean sheet in over half the games he played. [25] On 25 March 2012, he scored in Celtic's 3–2 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox. [26]
