Rangers: Dean Jones drops claim on Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s future

Rangers: Dean Jones drops claim on Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s future -Rangers News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has dropped a claim on Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s future at Glasgow Rangers.

The Lowdown: Under pressure

The 47-year-old is a man under pressure after two back-to-back 4-0 defeats in the space of five days.

The first of those came at the hands of bitter rivals Celtic in the Premiership, with an equally comprehensive thrashing administered by Ajax in their Champions League opener.

A further draw in the league has meant that they are already five points behind the Hoops in the table, so it is already looking like an uphill task for the Ibrox outfit to take the title back off their arch-rivals, and to progress from the Champions League group stage.

The Latest: Jones’ claim

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has claimed that it is ‘inevitable’ that ‘people are raising concern’ over Van Bronckhorst after the start to the season that the Light Blues have had:

“It’s inevitable that people are raising concern over Van Bronckhorst at a time like this, but if you make that decision to get rid of him, it costs you money.

“But further than that, you have to have a replacement lined up, and that person has to be a guarantee that things do get better immediately because otherwise you might as well wait for the last guy to turn things around.”

The Verdict: Patience needed

It is a hard thing in football, but patience is certainly needed with Van Bronckhorst.

After all, he is the man who got Rangers to the Europa League final last term, which they lost only on penalties, and also won them the Scottish Cup.

Should Rangers have hired van Bronckhorst?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It is still very early in the campaign, and deficits of five and three points in the Premiership and Champions League respectively can easily be clawed back with a good run of results.

Nonetheless, with the postponement of this weekend’s fixtures due to the death of Her Majesty The Queen, Van Bronckhorst now has more time to work with his squad and hopefully get them back on track.
