Lorenzo Amoruso has suggested that Rangers need to target people who know the club well during their search for their next manager, and suggested that Frank de Boer would be a good appointment, the Sunday Post reports.
The Gers are still looking for their next boss following the departure of Mark Warburton earlier this month, and in that time, a host of names have been touted as potential targets.
But Ibrox hero Amoruso has suggested that some of the names should be ruled out as the hierarchy should not be targeting someone who has no previous connection with the Scottish Premiership side.
“I am convinced they should look to bring in what you might call Rangers men at this point,” he said, as reported by the Sunday Post.
“By that I mean people who come with experience of having been with the club before in times of strength."
One of the names that has been widely linked and predominantly supported by the Rangers faithful is de Boer, who enjoyed a brief spell with the Light Blues towards the end of his playing career.
And Amoruso - who left the season before the Dutchman arrived - has suggested that he would be a smart appointment by the club if they could make it happen.
“I think Frank would be a good appointment for Rangers,” he added.
“He is a great coach, with very specific ideas."
Frank de Boer
One of the questions asked of Warburton during his time in charge was whether the Rangers job was just too big for him given that his only previous stint as a number one had come at Brentford.
There would be absolutely no way that the same could be asked of de Boer. During his playing days, he won the Champions League, the La Liga title and reached the World Cup semi-finals with the Netherlands.
And as a manager, he has taken charge of Ajax and Inter Milan, winning four league titles with the former to add to the five he won with them as a player.
And given his knowledge of Rangers, there is surely no question that he would not be out of his depth at all by returning to Ibrox.
