Rangers have announced the appointment of Dave Vos as the club’s new assistant manager.

The Ajax under-18s manager will join the Ibrox side as assistant to the recently appointed Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The new Rangers boss oversaw his first game in charge on Thursday night as his side qualified for the Europa League knockout stage with a 2-0 win over Sparta Prague at Ibrox.

In a club statement, Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson said: “In selecting all of the members [of] our new coaching team, Gio and I wanted to ensure that we added someone who was obsessed with coaching and improving players and teams with elite-level work on the grass.

“Dave is a young but experienced coach who has a top reputation, respected throughout Europe for his work at Ajax across the last decade. This is the next step in his impressive career and we are delighted to welcome him to Rangers.”

Manager van Bronckhorst added: “I am really happy that Dave will join our staff and I have a really good feeling of what he will bring to our group.

“He is a highly energetic and innovative coach and having him with us will be of benefit to everyone. Dave will help me and the other staff a lot to develop our players and our team.”

Rangers recently announced the appointments of Roy Makaay, Yori Bosschaart and Arno Phillps to van Bronckhorst’s backroom staff.

The Ibrox club next travel to Livingston in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
