Rogne not fazed by Gers prospect

22 February 2010 11:54
January signing Rogne, 19, made his first start for Celtic in Saturday's 1-0 Scottish Premier League win over Dundee United, which cut Rangers' lead at the top of the table to seven points.[LNB]The Norway Under-21 international formed an all-teenage centre-back partnership with Josh Thompson at Parkhead and the pair may be asked to continue at Ibrox if Glenn Loovens and Jos Hooiveld fail to recover from injury.[LNB]Rogne said: "We haven't spoken about the Rangers game yet. I know they have very good strikers in Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller, but we can't focus too much on them.[LNB]"We just have to focus on what we can do. If we do our best, I think we can do a good job at Ibrox."[LNB]Rogne, signed from Norwegian club Stabaek for around £250,000 last month, added: "The manager will decide if I play, I don't know.[LNB]"Of course, I have heard about the big rivalry between Rangers and Celtic, that it's a great game to play in with a brilliant crowd. But I've never actually even seen an Old Firm game on television.[LNB]"Back in Norway, a derby game for Stabaek was maybe against Valerenga in Oslo, but it doesn't compare. In our stadium, there were only 15,000 when it was full. Before I came to Celtic, the biggest crowd I played in front of was in Valencia at the start of this season when Stabaek played them in the Champions League play-offs.[LNB]"So it is kind of a dream for me to play in front of so many great fans here. I know most of them will be against us at Ibrox next week, but if I play I'll just need to think they are on my side."[LNB][LNB] Rangers v Celtic. Click here to bet.
