Balogun ready to start for the Rangers after injury

Sun 27 December 2020 | 11:57

The Nigerian is ready to be in the starting line-up against Hibernian in a Scottish Premiership game on Saturday.

During a challenge with

Jonathan Obika

in the closing stages of the match against

St Mirren

,

Balogun

took a blow to his head and he was replaced immediately in the 84th minute and he missed two other games against

Motherwell

and

St

Johnstone

.

The Nigeria international has been an important player for

the Rangers

since his arrival in 2020 and has helped the club to continue an unbeaten run of 17 games this season.

Hibernian will not have some of their players on their squad due to injury and suspension but that seems not to be a concern to manager

Gerrard

.

I worry about the opposition when the team sheet comes through,”

he told the club website.

“I focus on me and my players and I’ll worry myself about Hibs’ team before the game.

“We don’t look back as you can’t change anything. All that game tells us is we are going to be in for another tough test.

“They have good players, they are in a good place and good form, so it is set up to be a fantastic game.

“We felt hard done by in-terms of not winning that game with the chances we had and what we created on the day.”

Victory for Rangers will continue their lead at the top of Scotland’s elite division table.
