Graeme Souness Makes Celtic Claim As He Delivers Damning Assessment On Rangers And Van Bronckhorst

Former Rangers manager Graeme Souness says Giovanni van Bronckhorst will have to beat Old Firm rivals Celtic twice to get the club’s season back on track.

When asked whether van Bronckhorst could lose his job after the Light Blues slipped seven points adrift of the top, Souness stopped short of saying that the Gers boss should be sacked, but he claims the Dutchman’s position is in jeopardy:

“Undoubtedly he’s a man under pressure”Miserable European campaign, losing to Celtic… it’s going to be difficult for him to recover. He’s got to beat Celtic twice. Celtic have to slip up. Managing Glasgow Rangers isn’t an easy job, as I’m sure managing Celtic isn’t.”


“There’s games you’re expected to win simply because, certainly in my day, I could have one player that I bought for more money than the whole eleven players we were playing against. That in itself brought its own pressure. Glasgow Rangers are expected to win every game they play and that’s the price on the ticket when you manage that enormous football club. Right now he’s under pressure.”

With supporters now united in calling for van Bronckhorst to go, it seems as if it is only a matter of time before there is a change in manager.

The break for the World Cup means there is a perfect opportunity to bring in a fresh face in the dugout, and you would have to think that even if van Bronckhorst does get the full six points from upcoming fixtures against Hearts and St Mirren, there is still a good chance that his services will be dispensed with.
