Rangers’ reserve coach Peter Lovenkrands has been lined up to be the new boss of FC Nordsjaelland, according to the Daily Record.

The 39-year-old spent a large portion of his playing career at Ibrox between 2000 and 2006 before returning to Glasgow two years ago, taking up a role as the head of the club’s second team.

 

Lovenkrands has impressed in his first coaching role, leading Rangers’ reserves to the top of the table with 22 points from 11 games. But the Daily Record believes that his future is now under the microscope with Nordsjaelland offering the former Denmark international a return to his homeland.

Nordsjaelland are set to bid farewell to coach Kasper Hjulmand and it is understood that the 39-year-old is one name on their radar with sporting director Carsten Jensen a big fan.

And it would be little surprise if Lovenkrands’ head was turned. After all, he has admitted to the Record that he would be interested in taking over at the club who finished third in the Danish Superliga table last season.

“Of course, I’d be flattered by any interest from FC Nordsjaelland,” said the former Birmingham and Newcastle United forward. “They’re my local club and being a manager is something I want to do in the future.”
