Rangers fans have responded to Leon Balogun’s post-Partick Thistle friendly tweet, praising him for a ‘classy’ kit move that was spotted at Firhill.
Balogun was snapped up on a free just prior to the start of the 2020/21 campaign and had a strong first season at Ibrox.
The Nigeria international regularly impressed when called upon to partner Connor Goldson, making a total of 28 appearances across all competitions and contributing to many clean sheets as the Gers won the Premiership title and went deep into the Europa League.
The club took up an option to extend his deal through to the end of 2021/22 and he got his first taste of match action following the summer break in Maryhill on Monday night.
Balogun played the second half of the Gers’ 1-0 victory and tweeted about his runout on Tuesday.
“The first 45 mins in the tank and happy to finally be out there with the lads again,” he wrote.
The tweet also contained a snap of him in action, modelling the long-sleeved version of Rangers’ new 150th anniversary home kit.
Bears were impressed by how the strip looked on the team against the Jags, but on social media, fans actually focused in on another aspect of Balogun’s attire. His boots.
The 33-year-old went old school with an all-black pair that caught the eye of many watching on RangersTV.
Here’s a selection of responses to his tweet from supporters:
