Aribo, Balogun get new manager at Rangers

Super Eagles duo, Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo will be working with Giovanni van Bronckhorst as their new manager after the Dutchman was appointed by Rangers on Thursday.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona defender becomes the Gers 17th manager, replacing Liverpool legend Steven Gerard who left the club for premier league side, Aston Villa.

Speaking on the club’s official website, Van Bronckhorst said: “I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Rangers as the club’s new manager.

“I feel so lucky to be going to work with a squad which is in a great position on all fronts and largely has that experience of being winners.

“I look forward to carrying on and enhancing the work that has been done already alongside Ross Wilson and the board of the club, and I’m grateful for the chance to work again at this huge football club.”

Van Bronckhorst guided Feyenoord to their first top-flight title in 18 years during the 2016-17 campaign, as well as winning four domestic cups. His last managerial role before returning to Rangers was as Coach of Chinese Super League outfit Guangzhou R&F in December 2020.
