Dick Advocaat could be set for Rangers reunion in Europa League
Former Rangers manager Dick Advocaat has revealed that he has been approached by Feyenoord to become their new manager.
Their former manager Jaap Stam resigned after a 4-0 defeat to Ajax at the weekend and a 2-0 loss to Young Boys in the Europa League last week.
Now, it seems that Advocaat could be in the Feyenoord dug-out for the return match against Rangers in Rotterdam.
Rangers won the first game 1-0, which was their first match in Group G. Rangers are now second with Feyenoord bottom, but only three points separate the Dutch side from Young Boys at the top.
Advocaat was quoted from a Dutch radio station by STV saying, “I find it very difficult to lie, but they [Feyenoord] are interested, that is true.”
The Dutch Football Twitter account has said that he will be confirmed as head coach until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, the Daily Record claims that he will take training on Thursday with Feyenoord and will bring Spakenburg manager John de Wolf as his assistant.
The veteran 72-year-old manager has taken charge of over 20 clubs and countries, including Belgium, Russia, the Netherlands, Sunderland, PSV and Rangers.
He was the manager of Rangers from 1998-2001 and won the treble in his first season before winning the Premiership the next season with a record 21-point tally.
Celtic won the treble the next season before Advocaat resigned in December 2001.
