'He's Definitely A Concern For The Weekend' - Rangers Coach Gerrard Confirms Balogun Is Injured
Leon Balogun will face a fitness test ahead of Rangers' next Scottish Premiership clash against Livingston at Tony Macaroni Arena on Sunday evening.

The Nigeria national-teamer managed 45 minutes of the Light Blues 3-0 rout of St Johnstone on Wednesday, before making way for Filip Helander and it has come to light that it was an injury-enforced substitution.

With Balogun in the starting line-up, Rangers have won their first three games in the division and without conceding.

Providing an update on his top summer signing, Rangers coach Steven Gerrard was quoted as saying by Glasgow Times : "I think Balogun has a tight quad and we’ll get that looked at in [on Thursday] morning.

"He is definitely a concern for the weekend but we have real strong options in that area. Fil came on and played like an international player with experience.

"Hopefully it’s not a bad one. Leon walked past me earlier so I don’t think it’s anything major."

Balogun, 32, joined Rangers on a free transfer last month, signing a one-year deal with an option for an additional season in the club's favour.
