Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left fuming over some comments that have emerged on Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
The club have now confirmed that the Dutchman has been appointed as their new manager, succeeding Steven Gerrard who left to join Aston Villa.
Speaking on talkSPORT, former Crystal Palace chairman – now pundit – Simon Jordan was asked to give his reaction to the news, to which he claimed that he was ‘not overwhelmed’ by it.
Who should Rangers hire?
He questioned the ambition of the Light Blues by appointing van Bronckhorst, and also claimed that the biggest beneficiary of Gerrard’s departure would be their bitter rivals Celtic.
Of course, Gerrard did very well with the Teddy Bears, winning them an incredible undefeated Scottish Premiership title last season, but van Bronckhorst has won five major trophies in his managerial career so far too, including guiding Feyenoord to their first Eredivisie title in 18 years back in the 2016/17 season (BBC), ahead of the likes of Ajax and PSV.
A former Gers player as well of course, GvB is an appointment that the supporters can get behind.
Rangers fans on van Bronckhorst comments
These RFC fans fumed as the comments were shared on Twitter:
“Talks utter garbage constantly. Failed businessman, failed chairman & failed at life.”
“Coming from someone that thought Lampard would be a good appointment”
“Another guy who thinks football doesn’t exist outside of the glorified Premier League”
“Gio van Bronkhorst has more medals as a player and manager yet Simon Jordan isn’t overwhelmed….GvB is a massive upgrade, more experienced and won’t walk away like Gerrard did”
“In all seriousness who is this guy? Is he a pundit for talkSPORT or does he do anything else? Never heard of him in my life and he sounds like a roaster”
“Who does he expect? Tuchel, Pep?”
