Balogun, Aribo Benched For Old Firm Derby

Super Eagles duo Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo were handed a place on the bench by Rangers manager Steven Gerard for the Old Firm Derby against bitter rivals Celtic.

Balogun will be playing in his first Old Firm Derby while Aribo who missed out on Super Eagles outings during the international break due to injury returns but only good enough for a bench role.

The top of the table clash is usually viewed as Scotland’s version of El Classico and fireworks are always expected on match days but Steven Gerard will hope his side maintains their 11-match unbeaten record.

Balogun, who joined Rangers this summer suffered a muscle strain against St. Johnstone in August but returned during the Gers 5-1 victory over Motherwell in September. His performances earned him a recall to the Super Eagles where he featured against Algeria and Tunisia.

Rangers currently sit top of the Scotland premier league with 26 points while Celtic are just a point adrift in second with a game in hand.
