Frank de Boer's agent says Dutchman has real interest in Rangers job

Frank de Boer might not be a pipedream after all, if his agent is to be believed.

Frank de Boer won't take money into account when he chooses his next job, and has a genuine interest in managing Rangers, according to his agent.

Speaking to the Herald, his agent said:

"If he had no interest in a job like this, he would say no definitely and he hasn't done this. So if he has a good feeling about being approached by Glasgow then everything is possible."

"Of course there have been a lot of things that he has said no to before but he is going to put all the options on the table in May and then he will make a decision."

"When he played for Rangers, and you can ask David Murray about this, he didn't get any salary, he was playing for nothing, because he was just pleased that Rangers were going to let him play. You could imagine 25 coaches who are like that, in it for the money, but you can't say things like that about Frank because he has never made a choice about money. "

"He makes his choices about ambition and what he really wants to do. I am not saying that he will work for nothing - for sure he won't! - but what I am not saying is that money will not make it impossible for him to go there. It will depend on everything, the club, the vision, the long-term, the quality of the players, everything like that."

He then went on to highlight what De Boer would bring to the club:

"What they would bring is true football and a vision. At Ajax it worked because he had a vision and time to create a vision and I think if he gets the time that he will be successful at whatever his next club is too. I am absolutely convinced that he can go on to be one of the top managers in the world. Because I have seen him working and seen him succeed at Ajax where there is such pressure, to succeed with Dutch players."

We're sure De Boer will have plenty of other offers on the table, but it sounds like we should definitely be giving him a call.
