Andries Ulderink to land Rangers coaching gig as Philippe Clement bolsters Ibrox backroom team

Philippe Clement will continue his Rangers rebuild by adding Dutchman Andries Ulderink to his Ibrox coaching staff.

The Gers gaffer has been busy this summer overhauling his Light Blues squad. And he’s now set to bolster his backroom team too with the appointment of Ulderink. Clement has been assisted by Stephan van der Heyden, Alex Rae, Brian Gilmour and Colin Stewart since moving to Scotland last October.

Record Sport understands all four will continue in their current roles, with Royal Antwerp No2 Ulderink joining the set-up today following the Light Blues’ return to pre-season training. Ulderink had been working under Dutch legend Mark van Bommel in Belgium but announced last season he’d be moving after two years with Antwerp. The 54-year-old was also Jaap Stam’s right-hand man when the former Manchester United defender took over at Reading in 2016. He had a stint in charge of Ajax Cape Town in South Africa before returning to the Netherlands to be assistant to Twente boss Ron Jans.

His extensive coaching CV has also involved spells as a boss at Go Ahead Eagles, De Graafschap and Ajax Jong - the Amsterdam giants' reserve side.

Clement has already made three additions to his team this summer after signing Jefte, Clinton Nsiala and Connor Barron, with Moroccan hitman Hamza Igamane set to become the fourth after agreeing a five-year deal ahead of his move from FAR Rabat.
