A number of Rangers supporters have been overjoyed by Leon Balogun’s performance in the 1-0 victory over Celtic.
The first Old Firm derby of the season took place at Ibrox on Sunday lunchtime as the two bitter rivals locked horns and battled for local bragging rights.
Rangers sat sixth in the Scottish Premiership table before the game – one place below Celtic but level on six points from three games – so it was clearly a key early match in the title race.
Will Rangers defend their title?
The opening 45 minutes failed to produce much quality, although Odsonne Edouard missed a sitter for the visitors and Ryan Kent hit the post at the other end.
The match came alive when Filip Helander headed Steven Gerrard’s side in front midway through the second half thanks to a delightful corner from Borna Barisic.
Rangers fans praise Balogun after superb performance
Balogun was exceptional in the absence of James Tavernier at right-back and these Rangers fans took to Twitter to laud his display.
“Kyogo is in Balogun‘s pocket“
“Balogun been terrific so far“
“Balogun though. He’s on top form“
“Whatever we’ve fed Balogun today, keep doing it“
“Balogun Man of the Match. Been solid“
“Take a bow Balogun. What a performance“
