Leon Balogun special for SPL Leaders Rangers


Rangers have a talisman in James Tavernier, who isn’t just the club’s top scorer this season, but also leading the league in goals and assist (11-8).

But for all the magic that the Rangers captain brings, Leon Balogun is the sparkle for Steven Gerrard’s men.


Balogun joined the Gers in the Summer after a lonesome spell with English premier league side Brighton and the 32 year-old seem to have found his mojo and it’s rubbing off the team’s good form.


Rangers are unbeaten in the new SPL season; 15 wins and 2 draws, with a run of 9 consecutive wins.


For the Nigerian center-half, it has been a bliss this term, as he has made 15 appearances in all competition a total of 1150 minutes.


The defender played the entire duration of Sunday’s 2-1 road win over Dundee United, his 10th game and 10th win with the club.


In all 10 league games Balogun helped his side shut out the opposition 8 times.


The Nigeria international had a decent outing against Dundee United. He made 2 interceptions, 3 clearances, 1 block and won 4 aerial balls.



Next for Steven Gerrard’s side is a League Cup fixture against St. Mirren.


Balogun has not featured in the cup this season as Gerrard favors game load management in the case of the 32 year-old.


However, he could be back in action when Rangers host Motherwell later this month.
