Glasgow Rangers defender Leon Balogun has been praised by Beram Kayal, who played alongside the lbrox newcomer Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion, and knows him well.

The Berlin-born Nigeria international, Balogun, spent the majority of his career in Germany, before beginning his journey in British football with a move toBrighton in 2018 where he played with Kayal.

Balogun made 12 competitive appearances for Brighton before heading out on loan to Wigan in January. With his Seagulls contract running out, he penned a short term deal with the Latics to see out the English Championship season.

He made 11 league appearances for Wigan and, with their season ending on Wednesday, he arrives at Ibrox match-sharp and ready to step in following Nikola Katic’s injury.

Kayal, an Israel international, who made 132 appearances for Celtic between 2010 and 2015 before moving to Brighton, couldn’t sing his former teammate’s praises highly enough.

“Leon is a very good central defender,” he told the Glasgow Times.

“I rate him very highly. He is excellent on the ball and has presence. He has great drive, physicality and technique. He is a good fit for Scottish football.

“He has been unlucky with the game time he has had at Brighton. We have a few good players who can play in his position.
