The Athletic journalist and Glasgow Rangers reporter Jordan Campbell has slammed Leon Balogun for his “erratic” display against Aberdeen.
However, during a Q&A around the match, Campbell was less than impressed with him. He said:
“Balogun was quite erratic I thought though. Goldson had to have a go at him a few times for overcomplicating things.”
Needs to do better
This was Balogun’s ninth appearance of the season, and all in all he has been solid. In fact, the Gers have not yet conceded with him in the back four.
However, given how the Gers are performing at the moment, there is plenty of competition for places under Steven Gerrard. Connor Goldson is a guaranteed starter having played every game, but the place alongside him is up for grabs. Filip Helander and Balogun have both been used throughout the campaign, and with Nikola Katic reportedly close to a return from a serious injury, it is only going to be more difficult to hold down a spot.
Have you been impressed with Balogun this season?
In the end, his display didn’t cost the Gers, but if he wants to continue to play regularly this term, he will need to improve.
In other news, this 28-year-old reportedly wants a move to Ibrox.
