Giovanni van Bronckhorst can continue to take Rangers to new heights after their Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt, believes former Ibrox favourite Shota Arveladze.
The Scottish Premiership outfit are bidding for a second major European honour in their history, half a century on from their Cup Winners’ Cup triumph, in Seville on Wednesday.
It marks an outstanding achievement for Van Bronckhorst, having only taken the reins from Steven Gerrard halfway through the season after the title-winning manager left for Aston Villa.
But the Dutchman, who enjoyed a three-year spell at Rangers as a player, could lift the team up another level with time, according to Arveladze.
“Gio shows every single game and every single day how [much] further he could bring the team, bring the club,” the Hull City manager told Stats Perform.
“Credit to Gerrard, who did a good job before him, and which Gio continues, of course. That is Rangers, that is what we want. He is really [the] boss that knows what to do.”

Rangers have turned over two Bundesliga sides already, in the shape of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, to reach this week’s showpiece encounter.
Arveladze feels they should have no fear in taking on one more, pointing to a superior record in such encounters as suggestion they can get under Eintracht’s skin.
“I would say it has been fantastic,” he added on their run and results. “I am always curious [about them] having a hard time against the German teams.
“But to be honest, except for Bayern Munich, I think Rangers [could] beat every German club this year. [They are] playing a fantastic game, an offensive game which is always great to see.”
