Caltex Socceroos fullback Alex Gersbach is celebrating title success in Norway after helping Rosenborg clinch the Tippeligaen Championship with a hard-fought win overnight.
Gersbach played the full 90 minutes as Rosenborg fought back from a goal down to claim a 3-1 victory away to Molde.
Rosenborg only needed a draw to clinch the title but it was the hosts who started the brighter and grabbed the lead on the half-hour mark through Iceland international Bjorn Sigurdarson.
The visitors got back on level terms just five minutes into the second half through skipper Mike Jensen before Christian Gytkjaer fired the Troillongan ahead just past the hour mark.
Jensen completed his brace in the dying minutes to secure the victory and clinch Rosenborg’s second consecutive league title.
Meanwhile, Tom Rogic continued his sizzling form in Scotland, scoring and creating an assist in Celtic’s 6-1 thrashing of Kilmarnock.
The midfielder teed up James Forrest for Celtic’s third goal before finding the net himself with just over five minutes remaining to round out the massive win.
