Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard has hinted that Nigerian defender, Leon Balogun is fit enough to play in Sunday’s Scottish Premier League tie against Ross County at Ibrox Stadium.
Balogun’s fellow compatriot, Joe Aribo is, however, will still be missing in action for Rangers together with the pair of Nikola Katic and Kemar Roofe all as a result of various injuries.
Balogun was an unused substitute when Rangers emerged 2-1 winners over Galatasaray in the Europa League play-off at Ibrox Stadium on Thursday to reach the competition’s group stage.
And despite the Super Eagles defender having been in and out of the Gers’ squad in recent times which has seen him play just four league games this season, Gerrard hints that Balogun is fit.
“We’ve got a few with a few kicks, bumps and bruises from Thursday night but no one that we are majorly concerned with for the weekend,” Gerrard gave an injury update for today’s game during his pre-match news conference.
“We are getting healthier and hopefully at the weekend, there will still only be three missing which will be Katic, Roofe and Aribo. So, we are getting healthier which is good news.”
Aribo has taken part in only three league games so far during the 2020/21 season. He has hit the back of the net once while Balogun has now had three clean sheets as a centre-back.
