Giovanni van Bronckhorst becomes Rangers manager
Rangers have appointed Giovanni van Bronckhorst as their new manager. The appointment sees Van Bronckhorst, 46, rejoin the club he spent three years of his playing career at between 1998 and 2001.
The Dutchman replaces Steven Gerrard, who last week moved to Premier League side Aston Villa after a three-and-a-half-year reign at Ibrox.
Van Bronckhorst said in a club statement: “I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Rangers as the club’s new manager. I feel so lucky to be going to work with a squad that is in a great position on all fronts and largely has that experience of being winners.
“I look forward to carrying on and enhancing the work that has been done already alongside Ross Wilson and the board of the club, and I’m grateful for the chance to work again at this huge football club.
“I cannot wait to meet the club’s incredible supporters again and begin this new era for us all.”
Van Bronckhorst has been out of work since his departure from his most recent job at the Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F in 2020.
