Rangers are set to secure a major coup by signing highly-regarded Ajax youth coach Dave Vos to Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s backroom staff.

According to De Telegraaf, Ajax U18s manager Vos is set to sign a deal to join GVB at Ibrox until 2025 after around a decade with one of European football’s elite academies.

Over the course of that decade the Dutch club have produced a golden generation of talents and Vos has been at the centre of this.

The likes of Frenkie de Jong, Donny van de Beek and Matthijs de Ligt have all worked with Vos and it’ll be interesting to see his impact on Rangers’ fledgling young team.

 

Ajax U18 coach ever since the departure of Steven Pienaar this summer, stepping up to the Rangers backroom staff for the first-team remains a huge opportunity for a talented young coach.

Starting out in football by working underneath legendary Dutch coach Louis van Gaal at AZ Alkmaar, Vos has a stellar CV which has seen him work closely with the biggest names at the highest level of the game in the Netherlands.

Fans will be excited to see what Vos can bring to the club – and if the coach can convince any young Ajax talents to learn their trade at Ibrox – and the move bolsters the club’s backroom department.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard took no fewer than six members of the Ibrox backroom staff with him to Villa and the club has had to replace not only the manager but the support staff around him.

These include Gary McAllister (assistant), Michael Beale (first team coach), Tom Culshaw (technical coach), Jordan Milsom (head of performance) and Scott Mason (analyst).

So far GVB has added Roy Makaay (first team coach), Arno Phillips (fitness) and Yori Bosschart (analyst) to his staff with six out and to date only three coming in.

Dave Vos isn’t the only talented young coach from the continent being linked to Rangers either with one young Belgian coach also reportedly set to join the Gers.
