Leon Balogun has said he was happy with play in front of the Rangers crowd again after a very long time.
Balogun was in action for Glasgow Rangers in their 1-0 win over Celtic in a keenly contested Old firm derby on Saturday.
The Gers missed a number of their key stars due to Covid-19, but they dug deep to secured a vital victory over their rival at the Ibrox.
Filip Helander scored the winning goal in the second half to hand Steven Gerrard’s the maximum points.
In a chat with Rangers Tv after the game, Balogun said he’s delighted they had the fans behind them again, after some disappointing results.
It’s the first time I’ve met the fans in an Old Firm. It has been magnificent the way they have been pushing us.
“You can only say thank you on behalf of the team. They just kept us pushing.
“We had a tough week behind us, some setbacks within the group, but everybody just stuck together.” He said.
On the what the victory means to the Club, the Nigerian international said:
“People have been stepping up from the reserves, from everywhere. We have shown what that is about. It’s been amazing.
“You have to [leave everything out there] in every game if you represent that club.
“Especially in that game. It means so much. You see after the final whistle what it means to everyone – to us, to club members, staff, supporters.
“It makes it that much sweeter. It’s an amazing feeling.”
