Quite stunningly over the course of 6 weeks Rangers have just shipped out every single Nigerian player, and from having three, we now have none.
One cannot help feeling the freeing of Leon Balogun had a major impact on the decisions of countrymen Joe Aribo and now Calvin Bassey in such quickfire subsequent sales, and all three are gone in the blink of an eye.
From Rangers fans having major interest in Nigerian team sheets, we now have absolutely none, other than a curious eye to see how our ex-players do.
But how very surreal that it took roughly 42 from Leon Balogun’s exit to cause a ripple effect which saw both of his comrades follow suit.
It is probably just pure coincidence, that all the Nigerians left one after another – but it’s left Rangers with a whopping £30M up front in the past 10 days and that sure isn’t bad.
We sold well, we sold players whose time at Rangers had come to an end, and we wish them well.
The Nigerian chapter of Rangers is now closed.
