GIOVANNI van Bronckhorst took his first Rangers training session today - and Rangers TV cameras have given an insight into the new coaching staff.

The Dutchman, 46, met his players for the first time today after being appointed the new Rangers manager last week.

And Van Bronckhorst looked in control as he watched over his players in training with new backroom staff members Roy Makaay and Arno Phillps seen leading drills.

B Team coach David McCallum was also involved in the training session after taking the team in the loss to Hibs at Hampden.

Jermain Defoe was filmed taking part in the training drills, but did not appear to be in a coaching position.

The Rangers TV video also showed youngsters Charlie McCann, signed from Manchester United, and Juan Alegria training alongside the first-team.

The duo have featured for the B Team this season, but were training with the Ibrox main side this morning.

It comes after fans called for Alegria, who joined from FC Honka, to be thrown into the first-team following a series of impressive outings for the academy side.

And coach McCallum had previously called for patience before Alegria, 19, was promoted at the Ibrox club.

He told Rangers News at the start of the month: “Juan has just arrived – he’s learning how we play, he’s learning what we want from him as an individual within the team structure.

“Obviously, he’s scored a few goals here and there and people become interested to look at that. I think, first of all, Juan needs time to settle.

“Juan needs time to try and make sure he’s fully up to speed with what the team and group want to look like. From an individual point of view, yes he’s scoring goals, but there are other areas we’re looking at to try and make sure he’s a bit more refined.

“That’s in terms of linking play etc and what it all looks like out of possession, so he understands that when hopefully he does get to the first team.

“I think any player that scores goals does bring an interest but he just needs time to understand what it looks like to play for Rangers.”
