History

Rangers FC has so far won one European prize, that was in 1972 when the club won the then European Cup II. Eintracht Frankfurt was also successful once in Europe, winning the UEFA Cup in 1980. At Eintracht Frankfurt, the Dutch striker Sam Lammers, who is not a basic player with the Germans, plays football.

Van Bronckhorst started in November with the Rangers as a replacement for Steven Gerrard, who started at Aston Villa. The former coach of Feyenoord had to leave the title in the Scottish league to Celtic last week. Van Bronckhorst will have another chance at a prize with Rangers FC on Saturday. Heart of Midlothian will then be the opponent in the final battle of the Scottish Cup.

Twelve Dutch trainers once won a European prize: Rinus Michels, Wiel Coerver, Hans Croon, Kees Rijvers, Johan Cruijff (3), Guus Hiddink, Aad de Mos, Huub Stevens, Louis van Gaal (2), Bert van Marwijk, Frank Rijkaard and Dick Advocaat.

Van Bronckhorst could become the fourth successful Dutchman of this century in Europe. Van Marwijk won the UEFA Cup in 2002 with Feyenoord, Rijkaard won the Champions League in 2006 with FC Barcelona and Advocaat was the best in the UEFA Cup, the current Europa League, in 2008 with Zenit Saint Petersburg. Interestingly enough, Rangers was defeated in the final at the time.
