Leon Balogun: Super Eagles Defender Re-joins Rangers Glasgow


Socttish gaint Rangers Glasgow have re-signed defender Leon Balogun on a one-year deal following his departure from QPR.

The 35-year-old’s return comes after an ankle injury suffered by Leon King on Tuesday, which will rule the youngster out for a ‘significant period of time’.

Balogun, who won the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup during two seasons in Glasgow, made no secret of his desire to remain at the club but departed last summer when his contract was not renewed.

The Nigerian international – who spent last season at Loftus Road – has also played in the Bundesliga and Premier League, adding the experience which Gers boss Michael Beale has been searching for.

He is Rangers’ seventh summer signing and after joining up with the team at their training camp in Germany, said: “I am just excited to be honest.

“It is still a bit unreal but it is very real, so I am just really really happy to be back at Rangers – it feels like coming home.

“Since I have left, I have always felt a lot of appreciation and love from friends I have made in Glasgow and around the club and now that I am back it is nice to say the least.
