Ex-Nottingham Forest striker Nicklas Bendtner helps Rosenborg win record 25th league title


Nicklas Bendtner may have endured a difficult spell at Nottingham Forest, but his move to Norway has seen him claim silverware in his first season.

‘Lord Bendtner’ as he was dubbed during his somewhat entertaining stint in English football, scored from the penalty spot in Rosenborg’s 2-1 defeat to Aalesund, a goal which had put his side 1-0 up ten minutes into the second half before going on to lose.

Despite that defeat, Rosenborg claimed the Norwegian league championship by virtue of Molde losing at 1-0 home on Saturday to Kristiansund – their 25th and a record in Norway.

Bendtner’s side now have an unassailable eight point lead over Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team with just two games remaining, a success which will see them take part in next season’s qualifying stages for the Champions League.

Posting to his Instagram account, the Danish striker who is the division’s top scorer, having netted 18 times since his move to Trondheim in March, thanked his new supporters, having played a pivotal role in securing the Championship.

“So far it’s been an amazing journey. The support from the Rosenborg gang and the average fan has been truly fantastic.

“Let’s repay your loyal support with a big finish and secure the trophy. Bring it home where it belongs.”
