Bookies Slash Odds on Giovanni Van Bronckhorst Becoming New Rangers Boss

Bookies Slash Odds on Giovanni Van Bronckhorst Becoming New Rangers Boss

Bookmakers have been forced to slash odds on Giovanni Van Bronckhorst becoming the new Rangers manager following an influx of bets on the former Gers midfielder.

The legendary ex-Holland international spent three years as a Rangers player between 1998 and 2001, before turning out for Arsenal and Barcelona, and he’s currently in charge of Feyenoord in his homeland.

Van Bronckhorst confirmed his exciting coaching potential by winning Feyenoord’s first Dutch title in 18 years, which has led to speculation that he could be the man to bring the glory days back to Ibrox following Pedro Caixinha’s sacking almost two weeks ago.

At first, Van Bronckhorst was priced as high as 25/1 to move back to Scotland, but BetVictor have been forced to reevaluate their odds, with Gio now just 2/1:

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has been strongly linked with the Rangers job, as have names like Alan Pardew and Sam Allardyce – but would Van Bronckhorst be the dream candidate for most Rangers supporters?
