The Norwegian hitman is currently struggling with a back problem, but he insists the stories that emerged from Norway last week were well wide of the mark.
"It is completely wrong and it was the papers talking over in Norway," explained the 26-year-old, who is no stranger to being the subject of scare stories from his homeland. "It was a bit steep.
"I called back here and said there was going to be something in the papers, I didn't know what, but they obviously knew I was injured.
"It is what they say every time I am out with an injury - that I am out for the rest of the season - so there is not much in it.
"The injury will take a little bit of time but, hopefully, I will be back sooner rather than later."
Steffen Iversen has firmly denied reports suggesting that his season is over through injury.
