The Dutch media have reacted to the possibility former Rangers defender Giovanni van Bronckhorst could be in the running for the vacant Ibrox job.

Pedro Caixinha was sacked by Rangers after the home draw with Kilmarnock last month, but under caretaker manager Graeme Murty the Scottish Premiership side have put two wins together.

Goals from Kenny Miller (2) and Josh Windass gave Rangers a 3-1 away victory over Hearts in Murty’s first game in charge, whilst they followed this up with a 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle last weekend.

Despite Murty’s good start, Rangers are in the hunt for a manager to replace Caixinha, and De Telegraaf say Van Bronckhorst’s name has become ‘hot’. The Dutch newspaper base this purely on betting patterns in the UK, but the Rangers legend could be looking for a change.

The former Netherlands international helped Feyenoord to the Dutch league title last season, but in this campaign they’ve faltered.


The bad news for Rangers fans wanting the Dutchman, is that De Telegraaf pretty much rule it out. A switch to Ibrox is seen as impossible with Van Bronckhorst still having work to do at Feyenoord.

De Telegraaf believe the manager’s only focus right now is Feyenoord, so perhaps Rangers fans should hold back on further bets.
