Van Bronckhorst washes away European hangover and wins first prize with Rangers

Giovanni van Bronckhorst ended the season with a prize at Rangers FC. The Dutch manager seized the Scottish Cup with his team on Saturday. In the final, Hearts was defeated after overtime: 2-0.
Only after penalty kicks, Rangers died against Eintracht Frankfurt in the final battle of the Europa League on Wednesday. Three days after that wear, another prize was at stake and once again The Gers had to go deep. After ninety minutes, both teams kept each other in balance at Hampden Park, requiring an extension: 0-0.
In this, the Van Bronckhorst team quickly made the difference. Substitute Jack Ryan (pictured) broke the ban. Three minutes later, Scott Wright threw the game into the slot. Van Bronckhorst thus won his first prize as trainer of Rangers FC, where he succeeded Steven Gerrard in November. The top club from Glasgow had to leave the national title to archrival Celtic this season.
As a player, Van Bronckhorst also achieved success with Rangers. Between 1998 and 2001, the Dutchman captured twice the Scottish Cup, two Scottish national titles and the Scottish League Cup. As a trainer, Van Bronckhorst now has six prizes on his record after the national title, KNVB Beker (two) and Johan Cruijff Schaal (two) with Feyenoord.
