Kenny Dalglish praises two Rangers summer signings

Kenny Dalglish has told The Sunday Post that he can see Kemar Roofe being a success at Rangers following his summer switch, while he also praised Leon Balogun.

The fans have already had a first glimpse of one of those new arrivals. Balogun made his debut in the curtain-raiser against Aberdeen last weekend.

The centre-back was excellent at Pittodrie. He looked composed on the ball and made a number of exciting runs out of the backline.

And Dalglish insisted that Rangers look to have produced a brilliant piece of business to get the 32-year-old through the door.

“At the back, there appears to be no settling in period required for Balogun,” he told The Sunday Post.


“He was very effective away to Aberdeen last week, and helped the team to a clean sheet. He looks like a real leader.”

Meanwhile, one of the club’s most recent additions is Roofe. The Englishman joined from Anderlecht this week.

Rangers fans are yet to see the forward make his debut. But Dalglish suggested that he had high hopes for the 27-year-old.

“I like the look of Roofe, and feel he can be a real success,” he added. “He caught the eye at Oxford United and Leeds United, and there will be a real hunger from him to succeed at Ibrox, and be a part of something special.”

It does appear to have been a good window for Rangers. They have added depth in a number of areas and that will help the club battle on several fronts this season.

The pressure is on Gerrard’s men to ensure that they challenge for the title this term. But their work in the window has surely boosted their chances of getting their hands on silverware.
