Glasgow Rangers continued their impressive form with another victory on Wednesday, this time against St Johnstone.
The ‘Gers beat Aberdeen 1-0 in their first match in the Premiership this term before then hammering St Mirren 3-0. They won by the same scoreline in midweek against the Perth outfit, with Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Borna Barisic scoring the goals. As it stands, they are top of the table and are five points ahead of their fierce city rivals Celtic.
However, it wasn’t all good news for Steven Gerrard on Wednesday. Unfortunately, new signing Leon Balogun was forced off at half-time, and it has since emerged that he is a doubt for the match against Livingston this weekend.
Who would you rather start alongside Connor Goldson?
Many ‘Gers fans have been reacting to the news and it is fair to say they are far from happy – after all, the £720,000-valued Nigeria international, as per Transfermarkt, has helped to keep clean sheets in both of his first two league matches. Some supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:
Hope Balogun injury not too serious but good to see Helander get some crucial mins.

Slow start and sloppy finish.
Decent enough stuff in between without getting out of 3rd gear.
Getting Itten and Roofe some mins a plus.
Negatives, Hagi not at it again, Balogun possible injury and the standard of the ref.
Clean sheet, 3 points. Happy days.
