Scottish Premier League: Leon Balogun,Joel Aribo Involved For Rangers in Their 3-0 Opening Day Win over Livingstone

Rangers got their Scottish Premier League defence off with an emphatic 3-0 win over Livingstone at their Ibrox stadium home on Saturday.

Involved in the game for Rangers were 3 Nigerian players,Leon Balogun, Joel Aribo and Calvin Bassey.

Steven Gerard-coached Rangers,unbeaten in the league last season with a 100% home record, surged into an early lead when Ianis Hagi lashed high into the net.

But their threat was blunted until  Scott Wright curled a sublime finish into the far corner with the outside of his boot, before fellow substitute Kemar Roofe added a last-minute third.

Livingston failed to muster a shot on target, with  Nigerian Ayo Obileye horribly miscuing a free header in the first half.

Rangers’ Premiership unbeaten streak now stands at 40 matches – including a club record 20 successive home wins – and the late flurry put a more realistic complexion on a result that never looked in doubt.
