Maurice Ross has kicked off his career as a coach with Norwegian fourth division club FK Sola.

The former Scotland international, who had stints with Rangers, Wolves, Millwall, Viking, Aberdeen, Beijing Guoan and Motherwell among others has been appointed as manager of the fifth tier outfit who beat Havdur 5-1 in his first game in charge on the weekend.

“The team had been relegated from the third division and they were on a bit of a downer,” he told SunSport.

“They asked me to come in and do it the way I want to.

“I want to bring in a training culture and provide a bit of energy and motivation. But the fitness aspect is easy because of the culture here – the players think nothing of training sessions four nights a week.

“Although the club’s in the fourth division, we’ve actually got second division standard facilities. There are three training pitches, an astroturf pitch and the stadium itself.

“It’s the kind of place Rangers would go to in somewhere like Austria on pre-season training.”
