Ex-Rangers Star Giovanni van Bronckhorst Wants to Sign Jordan Larsson

Ex-Rangers Star Giovanni van Bronckhorst Wants to Sign Jordan Larsson

Former Rangers midfielder Giovanni van Bronckhorst is apparently angling to create a Celtic and Gers reunion in the Dutch Eredivise by signing Jordan Larsson.

Larsson, son of Celtic legend Henrik, is seen as one of Swedish football’s most talented young prospects but is likely to leave current club Helsingborg following their bitter relegation last week.

After a 2-1 home defeat to Halmstad, Helsingborgs were relegated for the first time in 23 years and Larsson, 19, was targeted by supporters who stormed the pitch and proceeded to remove the young striker’s jersey, in a show interpreted to mean he isn’t fit to wear the shirt.

His dad Henrik has since resigned as manager of the club and now it seems like his son will probably follow suit.

Swedish newspaper Expressen is claiming that van Bronckhorst is keen on signing Larsson and could get him cheaper than expected as Helsingborgs attempt to cut costs.

Despite playing for either side of the Glasgow divide, van Bronckhorst and Henrik Larsson were known to be close friends and went on to play together at Barcelona. It should also be noted that Henrik also played for Feyenoord in the early part of his career.

Van Bronckhorst’s Feyeneoord have surprised supporters and pundits by storming to the top of the Dutch Eredivise, where they lead Ajax by goal difference, after 14 games.

But would moving to his father’s old stomping ground be a good move for Larsson jr.?
