Van Bronckhorst has a clear plan for arrival of 21-year-old at Rangers

Manager Van Bronckhorst seems keen on perfecting the team as he looks to make additions where necessary, amidst rumors of exit by some of his players.

Standing first and six points clear of rivals Celtic, Rangers FC could be said to have successfully overcome the crisis that was expected after Gerrard’s exit.

Defender Nathan Patterson is associated with a move to EPL side, Everton, making New York City FC’s James Sands a possible replacement, but according to the Gers’ coach, the American youngster is more than just a replacement for his side.

Van Bronckhorst hasn’t used Paterson much after taking over from now Villa Coach, Steven Gerrard. If, like Glasgow Times reported, the Scot leaves for England, Giovanni is supposedly in no hurry to replace Nathan, opting instead to get a better option.

To sharpen their central defense, the reigning Scottish champions are determined to sign Sands, who compared to the outgoing Scot, is more Versatile.

According to the New York City FC boss, Deila, Sands’ personality and talent are to be lauded. “I’m very impressed by him as a player and his personality. He has all…that you need to become a good player,” praised Deila.

If reports are to be believed, attaining Sands’ signature and getting Tavernier’s reinforcement is the Dutch coach’s priority this transfer period.
