Defender Leon Balogun leaves Rangers

Defender Leon Balogun has left Rangers after his Ibrox contract expired this summer.

The 33-year-old leaves the club after two years in the Scottish Premiership, where he helped the club lift the title in his debut campaign and the Scottish Cup last term.

Balogun initially joined Rangers in the summer of 2020 before extending his contract in 2021, and he went on to make 65 appearances for the club, scoring twice and bagged three assists.

The defender immediately bought into the club since signing and played a key role in the delivery of title number 55 to Ibrox in the 2020/21, with a 100% home record.

Additionally, Rangers set a new club record that year of 39 league games undefeated in their final match of the season against Aberdeen.

Whilst being a key role in the backline, the Nigerian internationalist scored two goals in Europe, both being crucial in helping the Light Blues secure their position in the Europa League final in Seville after a remarkable run in the campaign.

The Nigeria international has been used sparingly by Gio van Bronckhorst since he took over from Steven Gerrard following the emergence of Calvin Bassey.
