Philippe Clement could be set to boost his backroom staff next season at his new-look Rangers by bringing in experienced Dutch coach Andries Ulderink to Ibrox.

Ulderink is currently assistant manager at Royal Antwerp to Mark van Bommel, but has already announced he is leaving the Belgian club at the end of the season.

And according to reports in the country, he is set to move to Glasgow to be an assistant coach to Clement.

Ulderink, 54, has experience of British football because he was No.2 to Jaap Stam at Reading for two years.

He then managed Ajax Cape Town in South Africa before returning to his homeland to be No.2 at Twente Enschede under boss Ron Jans.

Ulderink went on to assist van Bommel at Antwerp and is highly regarded having also previously managed Go Ahead Eagles, De Graafschap and Jong Ajax.

He started coaching at 24 and never played for a professional club and ex-Manchester United defender Stam explained why he chose Ulderink to become his assistant in 2016.

He said: "I spoke to him about his philosophy, what he wanted to do and it clicked. He has got a lot of experience in coaching, managing, making schedules and everything.

"That was what I needed; you do not always need to be a professional player to do well in a certain league.”

He was in the running for the NAC Breda job last month, but now seems set to join Clement at Ibrox as the Belgian reshapes his squad following their title challenge collapse this term.
