Philippe Clement has provided an injury update on Rangers defender Leon Balogun.

The centre-back, 35, started alongside Connor Goldson at the heart of the home side's defence as Livingston visited Ibrox.

However, the experienced defender was forced off with a facial injury sustained during the game.

Clement suspects Balogun has broken something, but revealed the player is keen to get back on the pitch as soon as possible by playing with a protective mask.

Asked how the Nigerian is, the boss responded: "Not good, and good in a way. It is not good because it is a bad injury, he probably broke something in his face.

"The positive side is that he is a warrior and he is somebody with experience who already had things like that in the past. He believes he can be fast back with a mask so I hope that is the case. It is the medical staff who need to decide that."

On the game itself, he added: "I am pleased what I saw today. I see the team grow week by week, month by month and that is also the idea, of course, that the players start to understand better and better how to run, when to run, the timings together, the connections, the reaction after losing the ball, the organisation attacking wise, defensive wise.

"I have seen three good goals. I see more and more the football that I want to play. We are not at 100 per cent yet but that is normal. I told the team also after the game that where they are now, with most of the teams in the past we were after nine or 12 months in that way.

"That is a really positive thing that you see also it is not about 11 or 14 players who understand, but the whole squad and whoever we put on the pitch they know what to do. The new players we need to integrate more and in that way it is positive that Fabio got these minutes and scored a good goal.

"It was important also that Oscar came in in a good way, we know the way we want to play football suits his qualities. A lot of positive things this evening. And next to that also this great synergy with the fans."
