Feyenoord manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has stunningly admitted that he may return to Rangers in the future.
Van Bronckhorst, 42, was linked to the Ibrox vacancy earlier this month when SkyBet made him second favourite to be named as Pedro Caixinha’s permanent successor.
The Dutchman, who played for the Light Blues between 1998 and 2001, won the Eredivisie title with Feyenoord last season, their first in 18 years.
The Ibrox faithful seemed to be fully in support of the board making an attempt to lure van Bronckhorst back to Glasgow, however he has since spoken out about the link, making it clear that he is not in the running this time.
Although the ex-Barcelona full-back admitted that he could be back at some point in the future.
“I’ve seen the media coverage, but I’m fully focused at Feyenoord,” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
He added: “Obviously I had a great time in Scotland with Rangers – I think one of the best times I had abroad.
“At the moment, for me, all that counts is Feyenoord.
“You can never tell, maybe in the future, because it is still a club that’s in my heart.”
Feyenoord take on Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Dutch champions have lost all four of their games so far in the group stages, with their only hope of European football after Christmas coming by finishing third, but even that seems unrealistic now.
The Rotterdam club are also struggling in the Eredivise despite being title holders as they are currently sitting seventh, 14 points adrift of runaway leaders PSV.
In other Rangers news, this 46-year-old manager who is wanted by the Gers is set to hold talks.
