Peter Jacobus van Vossen (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈpeːtər jaːˈkoːbʏs fɑɱ ˈvɔsə(n)]; born 21 April 1968) is a former Dutch football player and manager.

Club career[edit]

Van Vossen was born in Zierikzee. As a footballer, he played for Beveren, Anderlecht, Ajax, Istanbulspor, Rangers, Feyenoord, De Graafschap and Vitesse. During his time with Ajax he won the 1994–95 European Cup.

He joined Rangers in January 1996 in an exchange deal for Russian striker Oleg Salenko from Turkish side Istanbulspor, but made just seven Scottish Premier Division appearances that season, failing to score. He managed five goals in 14 appearances the following season as Rangers matched Celtic's record of nine successive league title, but featured just once in the 1997–98 campaign before returning to the Netherlands and signing for Feyenoord.[1]

International career[edit]

Van Vossen picked up 31 international caps for the Netherlands, scoring nine goals. He participated at 1994 FIFA World Cup and at the Euro 2000. Van Vossen was initially selected to participate at Euro 1992, but missed it due to thrombosis.[1]
