The Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are amongst the most excitable sets of supporters propping up our bar as they dream of what is hopefully an exciting managerial appointment. Having watched Pedro Caixinha try and fail, our local Light Blues are expecting something big.
As you can imagine, a number of names have been linked with a move to Ibrox to take over from the Portuguese and one of them would be an extremely emotional appointment. Indeed, former Gers favourite Gio van Bronckhurst has been mentioned amongst all this managerial talk, having enjoyed a hugely successful stint at the club as a player.
Signed by Dick Advocaat in 1998, the Dutchman won five major honours with the Light Blues before leaving for Arsenal in 2001 and is now in charge of boyhood club Feyenoord. Doing well in the Eredivisie, he’d certainly be a popular appointment here in our bar.
However, according to Dutch outlet De Telegraaf, it would be ‘impossible’ for him to leave Rotterdam right now as he sees his future with the club he started his career with and nowhere else.
Ah well, that was fun while it lasted.
He’d certainly have been an appointment to get the fans on side, that’s for sure. However, fighting for titles in Holland and involved in the Champions League, it’d be hard to see him swapping that for Rangers at this stage of the campaign.
