United’s interim boss says both players will be given the chance to impress at Old Trafford on Wednesday night after playing with limited game time under predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Henderson is yet to feature in United’s starting XI this season after a delayed start to the season due to a hip injury and pain with Covid-19, while Van de Beek has made just three appearances.
Rangnick confirmed that the two will be part of his starting line-up against Young Boys and that they will have the opportunity to bet on his spot.
“For starters, the two will play tomorrow in the first team of the year,” Rangnick said. “You saw Donny in the extra field on Sunday and Dean is a very good and ambitious keeper.
“We definitely need two goalkeepers, we even have three with Tom [Heaton] and with [Lee] Given that we have the fourth, so we have four goalkeepers, but we have three goalkeepers, who I assume will be recognized for the first team.
“Like I said, I have to get to know the players first over the next few weeks to finally evaluate them. I’m happy to have them all on board and I’ll try to give them as much time as I can. “
Rangnick added: “Everybody gets a chance to perform and express themselves.
“That’s why I’m happy to spend time with some of those players tomorrow to watch them come under pressure in a Champions League game in front of 75,000 people in the summer. a sold-out stadium.
“This is a perfect opportunity to get to know the players, like I did last Sunday against Palace. We only have one week of training so far. With every training session, every chance to see them play, I get to know them better. “
Edinson Cavani and Raphael Varane have both returned to light training but Rangnick says neither will be available to play the final game of the group stage, with United already guaranteed to top Group F.
Anthony Martial is also unavailable after suffering a knee injury ahead of Sunday’s win over Crystal Palace, although could return to play against Cavani and Varane next week.
