Super Eagles and Rangers Football Club defender, Leon Aderemi Balogun has said that he is happy and elated with the club’s victory and clean sheet in his debut game against Aberdeen, can report.

“We are happy with the win. Obviously, it was my first game and my welcome to Scottish football. It could have hardly gone any better and I think any hard as well, but it’s alright.” Balogun told Rangers FC TV.

“Not so much to be honest. I have had different or similar games before in the Bundesliga, Premier League, and in the Championship. It’s very direct, but one just has to adapt and adjust. The lads did a great job in helping me adjust and adapt in the whole week that I have joined now. It’s been fun. The second half may not be the way we wanted it to be or look like but we are happy with the win and clean sheet as a defender.

Balogun who had some goal-line blocks and collisions with his opponents in the course of Rangers slim 0-1 away win said that he has recovered from the headache as he looks forward to the club’s next game.

“I took some tablets already to keep the headache and I have carried on. There nothing like suffering any major concussion which is the most important thing. I got a few headers after that as well and there is no need to worry.

“The other defenders helped me throughout the week as well. I adapt quite quickly. Obviously, my experience helped me a little bit. It’s a great talk on the pitch.
