Rangers boss praised by UEFA Europa League account

Giovanni van Bronckhorst has been praised by the official UEFA Europa League Twitter account for winning his first three matches in charge of the side.

The account shared a picture of the Dutchman to their 8.8m followers with the caption “Rangers = 3 wins from 3 under Giovanni van Bronckhorst”, suggesting the impressive achievement hasn’t gone unnoticed on the continent.

The previous few weeks have seen the club become one of the most talked-about in Europe due to the surprise departure of former manager Steven Gerrard to Aston Villa, and the subsequent chase for a replacement.

This isn’t the first time the 46-year-old has been front and centre on the Europa League Twitter account in recent weeks, either.

As the news of van Bronckhorst’s appointment was made public, a video was shared of the former player scoring a wonderful free-kick against Galatasaray in the Champions League 21 years ago.

The appointment has made waves around Europe and proves just how big a draw the club is, not just in Britain, but also on the continent.

The Dutchman has led the team to an impressive start so far, something that all fans would have dreamed of having seen the tricky nature of the first three fixtures that lay ahead for the new coach.

With a new backroom team, a boost in confidence, and a slight tactical tweak, Rangers are heading in the right direction again after a patchy start to the campaign.

Meanwhile, Rangers fans have finally received good news regarding their ticket allocation for the upcoming match against Lyon.
