'Balogun has shown enough to give us confidence': Rangers fans react to Steven Gerrard's team line-up in Liege

Steven Gerrard selected Leon Balogun ahead of Filip Helander, drafted Ianis Hagi in for Brandon Barker and switched Steven Davis and Ryan Jack for the match against Standard Liege.

Steven Gerrard made three changes to his team.

The changes were welcomed by the Rangers support who were clearly in high spirits for the match in Belgium on the back on a very pleasing Old Firm performance and result.

Injured duo Joe Aribo and Kemar Roofe travelled with the group after a training session at Ibrox yesterday and take a place on the bench which also included youth player Leon King.

@djliddle75: “Good to see Aribo back involved.”@pmw_77: Great to see Roofe back on bench. Let’s do this."

@StuartWelsh4: “Still mystified why neither Defoe or JJ in squad even allowing for restrictions. Personally JJ for Barker all day long. That said come on The Glasgow Rangers."

@CF3Loyal: “Stewart, Barjonas and King on the bench shows the challenge we have with home grown players within the squad. Having said that, great experience for young King who is a top prospect for the future.”@gordyb1872: “Good to see young Leon King on the bench.”

Some had alternative options to the manager’s selection, but few were in disagreement.@robbiejh96: “I think having Jack and Kamara works if Aribo, Hagi, Kent. Or Aribo, Arfield, Kent etc all rotate as a three. Even putting Roofe in there. Lots of options, it's nice.”@Ross90141394: “Hopefully once Zungu is up to speed it’ll be Davis and Zungu rotated, as I don’t think Kamara and Jack works as well as if Davis was beside one of them and I think Zungu swings more towards a Davis type.”

@Gazzacusgxo: “Good luck to the team!! Gotta say though that's really harsh on Helander who's been immense lately.”

@Xero1982: “Balogun has shown enough to give us confidence of freely rotating the centre halves.”@copaciousdave: “Would have liked to see Itten get a run upfront tonight with Morelos dropping out.”

Of course, there were some who didn’t miss the chance to revel in the feel-good factor from the weekend’s result too.

@BroBobbyTait: “Thought he would have rested more players. Guess they must be fresh after the easy game at the weekend.”
