Nigerian international, Leon Balogun returned to Glasgow Rangers two months after leaving the club as a free agent.

The ex-Gers defender was at the Ibrox Stadium on Tuesday to support his former side during their Champions League qualifying clash against Belgian club Union St. Gilloise.

Rangers won the tie by 3-0 to overturn the 2-0 deficit they suffered in the first leg to progress to the next stage.

James Tavernier scored from the spot on the stroke of half-time to give the Gers a one-goal lead before the break.

Two second-half goals from Antonia Colak and Malik Tillman completed the comeback.

The club took to their Twitter handle to acknowledge the Super Eagles defender's return to the club.

The 34-year-old also took pictures with some fans after the game.

The Nigerian international spent two seasons at Glasgow Ranger helping the club to win their first Scottish League title since 2011.

He also aided the club to win the Scottish League Cup last season.
