Career[edit]

Club[edit]

A Norwegian youth international, Bendiksen signed for Rangers on 31 August 2007 on a three-year deal from Harstad IL.[2] Rangers paid the Norwegian side 1 million Norwegian krone (around £90,000).[3] A long-term knee injury put his career on hold and ruled him out of the entire 2008–09 season and most of the following season.[4]

Bendiksen impressed in reserve team games when he returned to action late in the 2009–10 season, and he was named as a substitute for a league match against Hibernian in April 2010.[4] Bendiksen made his first 'first team' appearance in a pre-season friendly match against Queen of the South in July 2010. After further injury problems, he agreed a new six-month contract in July 2011.[4][5] Bendiksen scored a goal in a friendly match against Hamburg, after which he was offered a new contract.[6] He played his first competitive match for Rangers on 3 December 2011, in a 2–1 win home against Dunfermline Athletic.[7]

Bendiksen rejected the offer of a new contract by Rangers and instead signed a deal with Tromsø.[8]

Molde[edit]

On 23 December 2014 Bendiksen signed for Molde FK.[9]

On 29 July 2015, Bendiksen joined Tromsø on loan for the remainder of the 2015 season.[10]

On 31 March 2016, Bendiksen Elfsborg on a season-long loan deal.[11]

He left the club on 5 December 2016, when his contract was terminated.[12]
