Gerrard hails “marquee signing” Leon Balogun

Glasgow Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard said his side are lucky to have Nigeria international Leon Balogun in the team.

Balogun signed for Rangers last week from Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion and the defender has made two appearances for the Gers so far this season.


He made a winning debut against Aberdeen at the Pittodrie Stadium two weeks ago and was also instrumental in his side’s comprehensive win over St Mirren at the weekend.


Gerrard said hes is aware of the Super Eagles defender’qualities and he’s  delighted to have the player on his side.


“We knew we were getting a top player in Balogun.


“He is our type & fits our profile and it is important at Ibrox when a team is deep for a defender to be able to sit on the halfway line.


Gerrard concluded that he spoke with Wigan boss Paul Cook before making his move for the player.


“I spoke to Paul Cook about him and he had only good things to say about Leon.” he said.
