Celtic have been handed a rather bizarre boost in the Europa League after one of Rosenborg’s main striker’s has been put behind bars.
The striker has appealed the decision but it looks likely he will miss all three of Rosenborgs final Europa League ties.
Celtic have already played Rosenborg three times this season; knocking them out of The Champions League qualifiers along with beating them with a late winner in matchday one of the Europa League thanks to a late winner from Leigh Griffiths.
That night, Bendtner looked like one of the Norwegian’s biggest threats and it will be a blow to Rosenborg not to have him going forward.
The striker has had brushes with the law before in his career but this is the first time he’s been put in jail.
The player sent a message to the support after the sentence was handed down.
