Rosenborg defender Tore Reginiussen has shared his selection of Celtic Christmas cards on Instagram.

The comical picture comes over a month after the Norwegian helped secure The Hoops’ last 32 spot in the Europa League.

Fans have flooded the centre-back with praise for having scored the equalising goal for Rosenborg away at RB Leipzig.

It appears some fans have taken that joy a bit further to communicate directly with the player.

Reginiussen is the current best player not to play for Celtic

Certain players of the past remain in the memories of the support but haven’t donned the hooped jersey.

Celtic fans will always remember a certain Alber Kidd scoring for Dundee against Hearts in 1986, sealing the league title for the Bhoys.

Now, it is the Norwegian’s turn to receive some of that love.

 

The 32-year old posted on his Instagram the Christmas and thank you cards plus a mug that was designed by fans after the game dedicated to him.

The Norwegian league is on its post season break and is due to return in a few weeks.

Rosenborg are looking to build on last year’s league title win but Celtic are also looking to find a centre-half, so some comical fans could push a move for him along.

Following his Leipzig goal, Reginiussen was happy to send the Celtic fans into jubilation.

After being flooded by messages on Facebook, he understood what the goal meant.

As reported by the Daily Record, he said: “It meant a lot to us to score that goal and I think it meant a lot to many people in Glasgow too because I had hundreds of friend requests on Facebook after the match.

“I’m glad they are happy, but the important thing was it prevented us losing every game in the section.”
