Leon Balogun should be available for Rangers’ clash with Hearts this weekend, according to The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell on Twitter.
The 33-year-old was forced off with an injury in the second half of Nigeria’s World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic on Sunday.
What’s more, according to WhoScored, Balogun has been the sixth-strongest performer in the Rangers ranks so far this season, so he would be a big miss if he were unavailable.
Campbell wrote in a tweet that Balogun is ‘expected to be fit for Hearts after his injury scare on Sunday’.
It’s a top-of-the-table clash in the Premiership this weekend, with Rangers only a point clear of the Edinburgh outfit after eight games.
This is not only a boost for the Hearts clash, but also ahead of what is a must-win Europa League fixture against Brondby given that Rangers lost their first two group games in the tournament.
It’s pretty much inevitable that, when each international break rolls around, there will be an injury-induced panic among many supporters.
In other news, these Rangers fans react to another international development.
