Premier League cult hero signs for second-tier club in Norway aged 41 and will even wear old club's colours | The Sun
BLACKBURN legend Morten Gamst Pedersen has signed for Norwegian club Ranheim at the age of 41.
The former Rovers midfielder is still yet to hang up his boots – a decade on from departing Ewood Park.
And the Norwegian has now penned a deal with the second-tier outfit in his homeland.
Pedersen said: "I'm always excited when I come to a new club.
"I think it's healthy that my stomach tingles a little."
Ranheim's kit colours are blue and white – the same as Blackburn.
