Nyaga back at Rangers
Sofapaka forward Joseph Nyaga has made a return to his former side Rangers FC after spending a season and a half at former champions Batoto Ba Mungu.
The offensive player, who made his mark in the first tier while playing for Rangers FC during the 2011 season, has maintained a low profile since crossing over to Sofapaka FC one-and-a-half years ago.
The move was confirmed by Rangers chairman Yobes Ongeri who explained that Nyaga’s presence would boost the team in terms of experience and offense.
“Just like many other players that have made their way back, Nyaga has returned to Rangers and I believe that we now have enough depth in the squad that will help us climb back to the Kenya Premier League at the end of this season,” explained Ongeri.
Nyaga left Rangers with a bunch of other players in search of greener pastures after the club faced financial constraints due to Posta Corporation pulling out at the start of the 2011 season. This led to a mass exodus from the club but a large number of players have since made their way back during the 2013 pre-season transfer window.
This is after Postal Corporation of Kenyan reinstated their sponsorship to the team that has now been relegated to the second tier.
Rangers dropped from the Kenyan Premier League together with Naivasha based Oserian FC, after finishing bottom of the Premier League at the close of the 2013 season.
