Ex-Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst rejected the return of management despite the shouts of fans

GIOVANNI van Bronckhorst was overlooked for a top job in his home country.

In fact, the ex-Rangers boss didn’t even make the SHORTLIST despite strong support for his appointment from FC Twente fans.

van Bronckhorst has been unemployed since leaving Rangers a year into his tenure at Ibrox last November.

A disappointing league campaign and an unintentional worst-ever Champions League record saw him replaced by Michael Beale late last year.

The coach still has the Scottish Cup and the significant entry into the Europa League final in Seville in his CV.

Add to that the fact that the previous Eredivisie title landed with Feyenoord in 2017 – and van Bronckhorst could be a credible candidate for vacancies in his home country.

Against this backdrop, Twente fans have touted the 106-cap midfielder as a replacement for Ron Jans at De Grolsch Veste, but sources in Holland say the Dutchman isn’t even on the club’s radar.

They had been looking for a new boss since mid-February and most recently turned to ex-Lyon and Ajax coach Peter Bosz.

But with that deal going through, they are now expected to switch for RKC Waalwijk boss Joe Oosting rather than the unemployed ex-Arsenal man.

Marcel Keizer is also linked, but van Bronckhorst has a ton of support locally from Twente fans.

One said: “Seems like the ideal man to me. Sober with common sense.”

Another added: “Peter Bosz. And if he doesn’t want to (yet), Giovanni van Bronckhorst. Sounds like #FCTwente to me. #new trainer”

van Bronckhorst has kept a low profile since leaving Ibrox and his official Twitter handle still bears his former job in the bio.

After a lackluster start to the season that also included a 4-0 win over champions Celtic, he left Rangers nine points adrift of the top of the Cinch Premiership.

A draw against St Mirren proved his last game in charge and he left the team to be replaced by Michael Beale during the World Cup break.

Beale scored a draw against Ange Postecoglou’s side in January and leads the squad into Saturday’s Old Firm game with a virtually identical squad.

The Dutchman’s first signing James Sands has left while Nico Raskin and Todd Cantwell have joined since the change in leadership.
