The former Rangers star admitted he’d be flattered to be approached but is only focusing on his role with the Gers for now.

“Of course, I’d be flattered by any interest from FC Nordsjaelland,” he said.

“They’re my local club and being a manager is something I want to do in the future.

“But I love my job at Rangers and that’s all I’m focusing on right now.”


Lovenkrands works alongside Graeme Murty with the reserve squad and has been part of the Academy staff since 2017.

He originally worked with the Under-16 and Under-17 groups before stepping up to the reserves.

A move to FC Nordsjaelland would likely appeal to the Dane as he grew up close to where they play in the Farum area of Denmark.

Despite being his local side, neither Peter nor his brother Tommy played for FC Nordsjaelland during their careers.

Lovenkrands was a big favourite at Ibrox before heading to Germany to join Schalke; winning two league titles, a Scottish Cup and three league cups in six years.
