“Rangers are delighted to welcome Leon Balogun back to Rangers, with the central defender signing a one-year deal with the club, subject to international clearance.”

“I am just excited to be honest,” he told Rangers’ website. “I am just really really happy to be back at Rangers – it feels like coming home.

“Since I have left, I have always felt a lot of appreciation and love from friends I have made in Glasgow and around the club.”

Balogun becomes the seventh signing of the summer for Rangers.

The 35-year-old helped Rangers to win the Scottish Premiership title in 2021 and the Scottish Cup in 2022. He played a key role in their run to the Europa League final which they lost to Frankfurt on penalties in 2022.

Berlin-born Balogun, who has 46 caps for Nigeria, originally joined Rangers in 2020 from Wigan Athletic and helped secure the league title under Steven Gerrard and a place in the Europa League final under Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

He was then considered surplus to requirements by the Dutchman, and was pushed out of the club.
