In Portugal, it was seen that Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst was rubbing shoulders with Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.
After competing in matches for Holland in early June, Virgil van Dijk isn’t scheduled to return to Liverpool’s AXA Training Centre until later in the week, but that hasn’t stopped the center-back from enhancing his fitness at the same facility at Rangers.
The Liverpool number four is currently in Portugal alongside Manchester City defender and Dutch teammate Nathan Ake as the two bumped into the Rangers squad and compatriot Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Van Dijk has been a regular visitor of the high-performance training center in the Algarve as it helped with his rehabilitation from the ACL injury he suffered in October 2020.
Rangers posted a picture on their official Instagram account of Van Dijk – who once played for bitter rivals Celtic – with manager Van Bronckhorst.
Liverpool’s pre-season training started on Monday with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Roberto Firmino returning to Kirkby. Van Dijk will return for the flight that takes the squad over to Thailand on July 9
