Giovanni van Bronckhorst lifts Dutch title in first job after Rangers exit

Giovanni van Bronckhorst presented the Dutch league title trophy to his former club Feyenoord at the weekend.

The Dutchman got his hands on the silverware in his first official job since leaving Rangers last year.

The 48-year-old was sacked by the Ibrox club in November during the enforced World Cup break.

He was replaced by Michael Beale, who returned to the club after around a year away.

Since leaving Gers, van Bronckhorst has been linked with a return to management with FC Twente, but a move has yet to materialise.

On Sunday though, Van Bronckhorst was back at his former club Feyenoord to join in their title-winning celebrations. 

They secured the Eredivisie crown with a comfortable 3-0 win over Go Ahead Eagles.

It was their first Dutch title success since van Bronckhorst was in charge six years ago.

So, as a kind gesture, van Bronckhorst was invited along to present the trophy to the current Feyenoord team in front of a packed 47,000 crowd.

Van Brockhorst joined fellow Feyenoord legend Robin van Persie to hand over the silverware to get the party started.

Ex-Hibernian goalkeeper Ofir Marciano was also among those who lifted the trophy in Rotterdam after joining the Dutch giants upon leaving Easter Road in 2021.

Arne Slot currently serves as the head coach at Feyenoord, although has been heavily linked with moves to bigger European clubs, including Tottenham.
