Leon Balogun

Leon Balogun’s contract with Glasgow Rangers expires at the end of the month, and the Scottish Premiership club has confirmed that he will leave.

In 2020, Balogun joined the Gers on a free transfer.

In his first season at Ibrox, the Nigerian international won the league title and played regularly under former manager Steven Gerrard.

“Rangers can today confirm that @LeonBalogun and @andyfirth1996 will depart the club following the expiration of their contracts.

Rangers tweeted, “Everyone at Ibrox wishes Leon & Andy well for the next move in their career.”

Last month, the 33-year-old made his final appearance for the Gers in their Scottish Cup final victory over Hearts at Hampden Park.

Last season, he made 37 appearances for Rangers in all competitions, scoring two goals.
