Sky Sports journalist drops major Rangers update on Van Bronckhorst on live TV

Sky Sports journalist Gordan Duncan has dropped an exciting update on Rangers’ managerial pursuit of Giovani van Bronckhorst as they look to quickly wrap up a replacement for Steven Gerrard.

What’s the story?

Following Gerrard’s appointment as Aston Villa boss earlier last week, the Gers have had to about turn and look for a new manager less than halfway through their Scottish Premiership campaign.

But, it seems that their pursuit of a new manager is unlikely to become a long-running saga, with Duncan dropping a major update on where things currently stand with Van Bronckhorst.

Who scored a hat-trick on their debut?

Speaking on live TV on Thursday morning at 9:14am on Sky Sports’ Good Morning Sports Fans show, he said: “Rangers appear to be closing in on their man. They are close to agreeing that deal in principle. Talks have progressed, and the Rangers hierarchy are pleased with the progress that has been made.

“Van Bronckhorst has been the main name on everybody’s lips for the last week, and it certainly looks like Rangers are closing in on their man.”

Rangers fans will be buzzing

The big fears for Gers fans after losing Gerrard to Villa, would have been a) would they be able to get someone just as good if not better than the man who left, and b) would it turn into a never-ending saga that threatens to completely destabilise their season.

What Ross Wilson and co have seemingly managed to do, is ensure that Rangers can head into the busy festive schedule with a new man in place and quite crucially, well ahead of the January transfer window where they can draw up plans with the new manager over who he wants to sign.

Would GVB be a good appointment?

Yes

No

No

Van Bronckhorst’s previous spell at Ibrox will already leave him in some credit with the Ibrox faithful, and if he is appointed very soon, then he could have the perfect chance to endear himself even more into the supporters’ hearts with a victory over Hibernian in the Scottish League Cup semi-final this coming weekend. With two Dutch Cups to his name already, he seems to have a liking when it comes to domestic knock-out tournaments, meaning he could guide the Gers straight into a final if appointed by the weekend.

Thus, Duncan’s update that Rangers are “closing in” on the Dutchman is sure to have fans buzzing.

Meanwhile, Rangers pulled off a transfer masterclass with this man…
