Gerrad lists super Eagles trio for Malmo Champions League Clash

Written by on August 10, 2021

Glasgow Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Leon Balogun is in contention to be named in the squad when his side take on Malmo in the the second leg of their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round clash at the Ibrox Stadium tomorrow.

The Super Eagles defender missed the first leg clash in Sweden due to a suspension and was not in the Light Blues matchday squad as their 40-game unbeaten streak came to an end after a 1-0 loss to Dundee United this past weekend.

In Balogun’s absence, the Scottish champions conceded two quick-fire goals in the second half but made things a bit easier for tomorrow’s second leg when Steven Davies with a deflected effort halved the deficit in the 95th minute.

Gerrard noted that Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey are also available for selection, adding that Nikola Katić, Ryan Jack and the suspended players won’t play a part against the Allsvenskan champions.

Balogun has played ten games in European competitions, consisting of eight for Rangers in last season’s Europa League and two in the colours of Mainz 05 in the same competition.
