Glasgow Rangers have received a massive boost ahead of their match against Hamilton this weekend, as Leon Balogun has confirmed that he has returned to training.
The 32-year-old signed on a free transfer earlier this summer and, following injuries to Nikola Katic and a lack of match fitness for Filip Helander, he was thrust straight into the starting line-up. His impact was immediate – the Gers kept clean sheets in his first two league matches, and they hadn’t conceded in the third, against St. Johnstone, at half-time. Unfortunately, at that point, the Nigeria international was forced off and hasn’t played since.
Who would you rather start alongside Connor Goldson?
There is good news for the Ibrox outfit, though. Late on Thursday night, Balogun shared a photo of himself on Twitter confirming that he is back in full training. Whilst it remains to be seen whether Steven Gerrard immediately puts him back in his starting XI – after all, Helander has since come in to the fold and the Gers still haven’t shipped a single strike – the £720,000-valued man (as per Transfermarkt) can, at the very least, provide the boss with another option.
