The Nigeria international had a brilliant campaign with the Gers last season, but unfortunately, it will be his last
Scottish Cup champions Rangers have confirmed that they will part ways with Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun at the expiration of his contract in June.
Balogun joined the Rangers from Wigan in the summer of 2020, and he has had a brilliant time at Ibrox. The 33-year-old played a significant role in their title triumph two years ago under Steven Gerrard, making 19 appearances in the run-up to their flawless triumph.
The former Brighton man also had a series of excellent displays last season, making 37 appearances in all competitions. He had a brilliant performance in the Scottish Cup final, where he, alongside compatriot Calvin Bassey formed a strong partnership that ensured they emerged victorious.
However, despite his displays, Rangers have announced that they will be parting ways with the Super Eagles defender when his contract expires at the end of June.
Everyone at Ibrox wishes Leon & Andy well for the next move in their career.

Balogun’s age could have been a determining factor in the Gers’ decision. However, he would look to forge ahead.
