The Nigeria international made a second-half appearance for Steven Gerrard’s men against the Dossers at Fir Park
The 32-year-old has only featured four times for Steven Gerrard’s men since teaming up with the side from Championship club Wigan Athletic in July due to injury.
The Nigeria international suffered a muscle strain against St. Johnstone in August and has been struggling with the problem since then.
The injury forced him to miss Rangers’ last seven games, including their 4-0 victory over Willem II in the Europa League third qualifying round.
Balogun, however, returned to action against the Dossers after recovering from his injury, replacing Filip Helander on the hour mark.
The centre-back gave a good account of himself in the encounter as he made 18 touches, won four aerial contests and made four clearances.
The Super Eagles defender has taken to social media to share his excitement on his return from injury.
“Great feeling to be back out there with the boys and get another important win. Well done lads,” Balogun posted on Instagram.
Balogun will hope to play a prominent role when Rangers square off against Turkish side Galatasaray in their next Europa League game on October 1.
The centre-back has featured in more than 30 appearances for the Nigeria national team since he made his debut against Mexico in 2014.
