Leon Balogun has effectively admitted former Rangers manager Michael Beale broke his heart after re-signing him from Queens Park Rangers only to dump him out of the Europa League squad.
In the latest attack on Rangers’ pathetic former boss, the Nigerian international was found to praise Philippe Clement, unsurprisingly, but had words of condemnation for Beale, after returning to Rangers to revel especially in the bright lights of the European nights.
Something, of course, which Beale then took away from him.
There’s no denying these words are laced with acid, with it not being the first time Balogun has slaughtered Beale.
Indeed, Beale’s treatment of the former Wigan man really was bewildering – signing him south for Queens Park Rangers when Giovanni van Bronckhorst ditched him at Ibrox, before panic signing him back for Rangers when Leon King got injured, then dumping him entirely when the youngster was quickly fit again, and then completely axing him from the European squad.
So he didn’t get it easy under Beale, but has had a new lease of life under the Belgian.
Safe to say Balogun has been one of Rangers’ outstanding performers and has earned his place on merit.
Pity his partner doesn’t earn a thing.
