BETFAIR – UP TO £100 IN FREE BETS*

It is understood a deal in principle has been agreed and Rangers could announce Van Bronckhorst today ahead of Sunday’s League Cup semi-final clash with Hibs.

The former midfielder spent three years at Ibrox as a player, making 117 appearances and winning two league titles and three cups before moving to Arsenal and then Barcelona.

He won the Premier League with Arsenal as well as La Liga twice and the Champions League with Barcelona.

He was also a runner-up in the 2010 World Cup with Holland.

And after four years as Feyenoord manager, where he won the Dutch title, and a short spell in China he will take over a Rangers side four points clear in the SPFL.

They face Hibs on Sunday in the League Cup semi-final and could still qualify for the Europa League knockouts.

He became the leading contender early on despite links with Russell Martin, Derek McInnes and Frank Lampard.

And was quickly odds on favourite with most bookmakers including Betfair who have now suspended the market.
