Super Eagles duo Joe Aribo and Leon Balogun will play under a new Dutch coach at Glasgow Rangers when club football returns this weekend following the two weeks international break.

The Scottish champions hired Giovanni van Bronckhorst as their new manager yesterday after Steven Gerrard’s move to Aston Villa.

Former Rangers midfielder Van Bronckhorst returns to Ibrox as the 17th permanent manager in the history of the Glasgow giants.

The 46-year-old, whose appointment is subject to a work permit, arrives with Rangers sitting four points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

“I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Rangers as the club’s new manager,” Van Bronckhorst said.

“I feel so lucky to be going to work with a squad which is in a great position on all fronts and largely has that experience of being winners.”

Van Bronckhorst played for Rangers between 1998 and 2001, winning five trophies including two league titles.

He also had a Premier League-winning spell with Arsenal and lifted the Champions League at Barcelona, while winning 106 caps for the Netherlands and playing in the 2010 World Cup final.
