Rangers have moved one step closer to appointing Giovanni van Bronckhorst as their new manager after having ‘positive’ talks with the Dutchman in London.

The Glasgow giants are looking for a new manager after Steven Gerrard joined Aston Villa last week.

Van Bronckhorst, 46, spent three years at Ibrox between 1998 and 2001, winning five silverware along the way.

The Dutchman jumped into London on Monday and his representatives told Sky Sports News that ‘positive’ talks were being held with the club.

The former Arsenal defender is keen to return to the lead after leaving Chinese Superliga club Guangzhou City.

Van Bronckhorst made his name in the lead at Feyenoord, where he led the team to KNVB Cup success in his first full season in charge, before sealing the Eredivisie title the following year – the club’s first in 18 years.

Rangers have a four-point lead at the top of the SPFL table, with Celtic in second place.

Gers have only lost one this season and have won nine of their 13 matches so far.
