Frank de Boer has been in London this week amid links to the Rangers job
The Glasgow giants are looking for a new boss following the departure of Mark Warburton and his team of David Weir and Frank McParland.
The Rangers board have begun interviewing candidates in London for both the manager and director of football roles.
De Boer is on the shortlist and admits he’s ready to return to the UK to work.
The legendary Holland defender was sacked by Inter Milan earlier this season after just three months in charge.

Who will be the next Rangers boss, according to the bookies?
Frank de Boer spent six successful seasons as Ajax boss
That followed a successful spell as Ajax boss and his reputation remains good.
And De Boer was in London this week for an interview with the Daily Mail and when asked if he could return to Rangers by a fan passing by he said: “I would love to manage here, but the project has to be right.
“I told Liverpool I was honoured but I was only one year in at Ajax, it was too soon. I needed to achieve more, and I did.”
De Boer spent six months at Rangers as a player at the back-end of his career and has been backed for the manager’s job by former team-mate Artur Numan.
Frank de Boer played 112 times for Holland during an illustrious career
The former Rangers and Holland left-back insists De Boer would be a catch for the Ibrox side.
“If you can get Frank you get someone with a lot of experience at the highest level as a player and a coach,” Numan told the Sun.
“But he is a very sought-after coach and I know he will have a lot of offers to choose from.
“He had incredible success at Ajax, playing some terrific football, and is one of the most exciting young coaches around at the moment.
“I’m sure he will be successful again, whether it’s with Rangers or another club.
“Frank has made it clear he will wait until the end of the season before making a decision, so if Rangers want to sign him they will have to wait until June.”
