Thomas Rogne (born 29 June 1990) is a Norwegian professional footballer who plays as a centre back for Wigan Athletic. Rogne has also been capped for the Norway national team.

Club career[edit]

Stabæk[edit]

Rogne started his career with Norwegian club Stabæk. He missed the entire 2008 season after tearing the anterior cruiciate 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 FC Copenhagen[2] and Valencia,[3] and also represented the club in the Europa League.[4]

Celtic[edit]

Rogne signed for Celtic on 20 January 2010,[5] and joined on a three and a half-year contract.[6] Ex-Celtic player Vidar Riseth described him as "the best young talent to come out for Norway in the past ten years".[7] Rogne was given the number 25 shirt.[8]

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.[9] 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.[10] Rogne impressed against Rangers on 28 February 2010[11] but was taken off due to a hamstring injury.[12] He returned two months later in an away game against Dundee United[13] but once again had to leave the field early through injury.[14]

Rogne made his first competitive start of the 2010–11 season for Celtic against St Johnstone in a 3–0 win.[15][16] In the following game he was sent off for a professional foul against Aberdeen.[17][18] Despite this, Celtic went on to win the game by a record-breaking 9–0 score.[18] He scored his first goal for Celtic in a 1–1 draw against Kilmarnock in December 2010.[19] Rogne won many plaudits for his performance as Celtic beat Rangers 2–0 at Ibrox in the 2011 New Year derby.[20][21][22] He scored his second goal for Celtic against Aberdeen in their 4–1 League Cup semi-final win on 29 January 2011.[23] 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.[24] An injury in May sidelined Rogne for the rest of the season.[25]

Injury kept Rogne out of the Celtic side for the first few months of the following season.[25] He returned to the Celtic first team in October 2011 in their League Cup quarter-final tie against Hibernian.[25] 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.[26] On 25 March 2012, he scored in Celtic's 3–2 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox.[27]

Wigan Athletic[edit]

On 27 June 2013, it was confirmed that Rogne would leave Celtic after his contract expired to join FA Cup holders Wigan Athletic on a free transfer, signing a three-year contract.

On 31 August 2013, Rogne made his Wigan debut at home against Nottingham Forest in a 2-1 win for the side.

International career[edit]

Rogne has represented Norway at youth level, and played for the under-19 team in the 2009 UEFA Under-19 Championship qualification.[4] Rogne was later captain of the under-21 team,[5][15] and were playing alongside the captain Stefan Strandberg in the central defence when Norway U21 qualified for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.[28]

In March 2011, he received his first call-up to the Norway senior side for their Euro 2012 qualification match with Denmark but did not feature.[29]

Rogne made his senior debut for Norway on 29 February 2012 in a 3–0 friendly win against Northern Ireland.[30][31]
