Scottish side, Glasgow Rangers, has confirmed Giovanni Van Bronckhorst as the club’s new manager following the exit of Steven Gerrard.
The club in a statement on its website announced the appointment off the former Dutch national team captain as the club’s new boss on Thursday.
The far famed 46-yeat old Van Bronckhorst is hugely respected and a vastly experienced figure in the game, and joins the Gers subject to receipt of a work permit.
Meanwhile, Rangers chairman, Douglas Park, in announcing Van Bronckhorst’s appointment, expressed his delight over his arrival and wishes the new manager success in his new adventure.
“I am delighted to welcome Giovanni as our manager to begin a new era and build further on what has already been achieved at the club.
“The team is in a good position on the park and, as a board, we will support both Giovanni and Ross Wilson to continue to make Rangers a success.
“I wish Giovanni all the very best in his role and look forward to working closely alongside him.”
On his appointment, Van Bronckhorst said: “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 which 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.
His playing time in Glasgow was laden with success and five Rangers trophies as he won two league titles, two Scottish Cups and a League Cup while making 118 appearances and scoring 22 goals in the process.
