Rangers are looking to strike a deal with the Nigerian football association to prevent their team stars from missing Celtic clash in January due to AFCON
Rangers are hoping to ensure their star Nigerian trio are available for the Old Firm clash in January despite the Africa Cup of Nations Competition.
Rangers are set to meet Celtic on the 2nd of January, 2022.
And as things stand, they won't be able to call upon Joe Aribo, Leon Balogun or Calvin Bassey for the head-to-head clash at Parkhead if they are called up by their country for the continental competition in the new year.
And FIFA already stated that players should be released from their clubs on December 27 for the tournament which kicks off on January 9.
Rangers are hoping for successful negotiation with the Nigerian FA and German boss Gernot Rohr for the players to report for duty after the Celtic clash.
