Rangers fans react to Leon Balogun display

A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Leon Balogun as Steven Gerrard’s side secured their third league win away from Ibrox this season on Saturday.

The Gers were not at their best by any means. Jon McLaughlin had to save a penalty after initially giving away the spot-kick.

But they displayed why they were champions last term. They got the three points when they were struggling.

But plenty of supporters have also lauded Balogun, with many feeling that his performance at the back was absolutely pivotal.

The 33-year-old has arguably established himself now as first-choice alongside Connor Goldson at the heart of the Rangers backline.

And he stepped up with a big performance against Dundee.

According to Whoscored, he completed 53 passes. Meanwhile, he made three clearances, two interceptions and one successful tackle.

Of course, the onus is now on Balogun to shut the door on Filip Helander when the Sweden international returns from injury.

But plenty of the supporters feel that he is playing superbly right now.
