Glasgow Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Nigeria internationals Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo will not play the club’s next match against Kilmarnock at Ibrox Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

Balogun suffered a quad injury on matchday three against St. Johnstone and had to be substituted at halftime while Aribo sustained his injury during training last week.

“Balogun and Aribo won’t make the weekend. I think both have a good chance for the following week.” Gerrard told the national press in Scotland.

“McGregor is back fit after training yesterday, Defoe still won’t be seen until after the International break.”

Both Balogun and Aribo were eventually left out trip to Livingston for the first time this season, in terms of domestic matches. They were also omitted from the starting lineup.

Rangers’ next match after the home game against Kilmarnock is a trip to the Fountain of Youth Stadium, where they face Hamilton Academical on August 29.

The Scottish leading team are the first not to concede a goal after four matches in the Scottish Premiership.
