Rangers in talks with van Bronckhorst

A development has emerged on Gio van Bronckhorst, regarding Rangers’ interest in appointing him as Steven Gerrard’s successor.

What’s the talk?

According to the Daily Record, Gers chief Ross Wilson has already entered into talks with the Dutchman’s representatives over a potential move to Ibrox.

The report claims that talks are set to continue over the weekend, with van Bronckhorst due in London to meet face-to-face.

Would Van Bronckhorst be a good appointment?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

Excitement for Rangers

This update will surely leave Rangers fans feeling excited as Wilson appears to be moving swiftly following Gerrard’s switch to Premier League side Aston Villa earlier this week. The club are now twiddling their thumbs in their search for a new head coach and the supporters will be delighted that they are wasting no time in holding talks with van Bronckhorst over the role.

Gerrard, to his credit, has left Rangers in a superb position. They are currently sitting four points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table after 13 games and this could make them an attractive prospect for coaches who are keen to come in and win a trophy this season.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

Therefore, bringing in a manager who knows how to secure trophies could be a shrewd move by Wilson. Van Bronckhorst won five trophies in four years as manager of Feyenoord in the Netherlands, including four cups and one Eredivisie title. This shows that he knows how to set up a side to win silverware and that is why fans could get excited by the prospect of his arrival.

One criticism that could be levelled at Gerrard’s time with Rangers is his lack of cup success. He did not win a trophy outside of the Premiership – reaching the final once in six attempts at the SFA Cup and League Cup. Van Bronckhorst, meanwhile, reached five cup finals with Feyenoord and won four of them.

This suggests that the 46-year-old, who also has experience of winning a league title, could come in and improve Rangers’ chances of completing the domestic double or treble this season. Therefore, the prospect of league and cup success at Ibrox this season could excite supporters and leave them delighted with this update on the pursuit of the Dutchman.

AND in other news, Wilson could get Ibrox rocking by appointing divisive 43 y/o “phenomenon” at Rangers…
