“The second half was maybe not exactly what we wanted the game to be and to look like, but we are happy with the win and the clean sheet as well.”

Balogun’s super performance was in doubt of continuing at one point as he collided with the post, but he was fine to continue and said: “I took some tablets to keep the headache down but I carried on. I don’t think I suffered any major concussion or anything which is the most important thing.

“I got a few headers in after that as well so there is no need to worry.”

Balogun also thanked the Rangers fans for the way they have welcomed him to the club, and added: “It has been big! When I signed on Friday, everything was a bit hectic so I had to go back to Manchester to get some stuff.

“But it has been amazing – I slowly start to get an idea of how big the fan culture is. As I said in my first interview, I heard a lot about it, but I think there is nothing like having them with you and behind you and everybody is looking forward to getting them back into the stadium.”
