Rangers are set to start talks on Saturday as they look to replace Steven Gerrard at the helm of Ibrox.

The Fourth Official has reported that Giovanni van Bronckhorst is one of the names in the running, with a sensational return to Glasgow on the cards.

It has even been reported that he will jet into Glasgow this morning to start talks with Ross Wilson and stake his claim.

Things are really starting to pick up pace now and it looks as though Van Bronckhorst is the frontrunner.

Given that the talks are set for tomorrow, it looks as though the Dutchman is the number one choice and will be given the chance to impress ahead of other candidates.

Van Bronckhorst knows the club inside and out, has tasted success with the likes of Feyenoord winning silverware, and will be no stranger to the brutal environment at Glasgow.

The former Barcelona and Arsenal man would demand instant respect from his squad, and would arguably be a bigger appointment than Gerrard was at the time.

We asked our Super Fans over on the Rangers Insider Facebook page whether they think the deal is done and dusted.

The response was overwhelming with the majority delighted and one even insisting that the club should announce it already.

Here’s what they said below…

Maybe these are a little premature, but it looks as though Van Bronckhorst already has a fan club to call upon at Ibrox – the signs are looking good.
