Imminent Rangers arrival Dave Vos has been spotted in Scotland as the Dutch assistant manager took in the 3-1 Scottish Premiership victory over Livingston.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst took charge of his team in the Scottish top-flight for the first time at the Tony Macaroni and the club secured an important three points in the hunt for a 56th league title.
Despite being in the job as Gers manager for only six days it’s been a bright start for GVB and ex-Ajax youth coach Dave Vos, 38, is set to join as assistant manager.
The move was announced earlier in the week and Vos will now work with the Rangers top team after over a decade in the youth set-up at Ajax, one of the most widely regarded in world football.
Working with some of the top young talents in the Dutch game, Vos has been part of a staff which have just overseen the emergence of the latest Ajax golden generation and his appointment has turned heads in Scotland.

The Dutch club even took to social media to announce Dave Vos’ departure to Rangers from his role as manager of the club’s B side with the Dutch club to replace him “internally” [Ajax].

Joining Roy Makaay (first-team coach), Arno Phillips (fitness coach) and Yori Bosschart (video analyst), Rangers have now moved to sign five Dutch personnel in only a matter of days since the departure of Steven Gerrard and his backroom staff.
It’s commendable work and van Bronckhorst had been speaking about the appointment of Vos prior to the match with the Lions.
“I spoke with Dave Vos a couple of times this year. I have only heard good things about him and how he thinks about players,” said van Bronckhorst [Rangers].
“He is a very young coach and very talented. I saw a very good assistant in him and I’m really happy for him to join the club.
“He is a highly energetic and innovative coach and having him with us will be of benefit to everyone.
“Dave will help me and the other staff a lot to develop our players and our team.”
Dave Vos now looks ready to start life at Rangers as he arrives in Glasgow and he will have plenty to think about following the impressive 3-1 win over the Lions.
However, whilst the Gers ran out comfortable winners there was one noticeable absentee from the side who maintain a four-point lead at the top of the Premiership.
