Glasgow Rangers’ European dream came to an end last night against Slavia Prague at Ibrox, and Leon Balogun was partly to blame for the Gers’ collapse.
The 55-time Scottish champions drew 1-1 in Czechia in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 clash and will have been hoping to get the job done at home. However, they ended up losing 2-0 in the return match and therefore were defeated 3-1 on aggregate.
Balogun, in particular, struggled against Slavia. His lack of pace was clear, he lost possession 15 times (SofaScore) and he was also sent off for a second bookable offence in the second half. That dismissal came after Kemar Roofe had already been given his marching orders for a stomach-churning tackle on goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar – Balogun made his side’s job even harder.
Was Balogun the worst player on the pitch vs Slavia?
The Gers supporters were far from happy with his display, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Balogun below
“Balogun was shocking since the first minute, probably should of gave a penalty away and then gets sent off. Disaster.”
“Both balogun and goldson were awful!”
“Three players tonight showed the are true Rangers in an important game, Davis, Kent and Patterson. Ariobo, Barasic, were ify. Kamara, Arfield, Morelos. Balogun was a liability. Roofe? should go. Lord have mercy on us come Sunday barring one of our opponents miracle.”
“Because the red card was coming all game. He was pathetic tonight. Shouldve been hooked at half time”
“Balogun isn’t good enough for Rangers .. that’s just the truth & it’s not based on one game”
In other news, Rangers are interested in this 18-goal striker.
