Nigeria Defender Leon Balogun, kicked-off his Rangers career in style,as he played full 90 minutes helping the Gers beat rivals Aberdeen 1-0 to win first game of the season.

Steven Gerard named a strong starting line-up that featured former Mainz 05 defender Leon Balogun alongside fellow Nigerian Joe Aribo.

It will be recalled that Balogun was signed on a free-transfer after the completion of his deal with Brighton and Hove Albion, plus spending the past few months with Wigan Athletic in the Championship.

The aforementioned Ex-Brighton and Hove Albion player, participated in three training sessions for Rnagers before been deemed fit to play against Aberdeen.

Former Liverpool player Ryan kent scored the first goal of the game for Rangers, in the first-half of the game, as he was assisted by Colombian Alfredo Morelos.

Rangers dominated the entirety of the game from virtually all sectors, amassing 60% of possession, plus making 14 shots attempt which 4 came on target.

The Gers bottled the Scottish Premier League title last season, leaving bitter rivals Celtic to continue dominance in the division. Steven Gerard would want to make an atonement for last seasons, error. Their only chance of making that atonement will be to win the Scottish premier League 2020/21 season.

Striker Alfredo Morelos has been intensely linked with a move away from the side, with Lille interested in bringing him on as a replacement for departed Victor Osimhen, who joins Napoli in Italy.
