* Emmanuel Daniel, formerly of Shooting Stars FC, has started the most matches of the five goalkeepers listed. Daniel, arguably one of the most interesting goalkeepers in Nigerian football, has most likely played between 15 and 20 matches so far this season.

* Razaq Adegbite, the talented striker, has lately spent some time in Turkey. It seems uncertain whether he will feature more for Rangers International FC this season.

* Nnamdi Anyasodo is a rock-solid and consistent performer at left-back. Anyasodo has most likely played approximately 25 matches so far this season.

* Versatile attacker Dada Bitrus is possibly the most used player this season. As far as I know, the former striker / winger of UNICEM Rovers FC has been pretty much ever-present during the first 30 matches of the season.

* Left-winger Samuel Chukwudi and striker Adamu Mohammed have both left the club and joined high-flying Bayelsa United FC.

* Striker Meshack Chukwubuikem, formerly of Shooting Stars FC and Akwa United FC, played for Egyptian side Smouha during the 2010-2011 season.

* In Pierre Coly and Pape Ousmane Sané, Rangers International FC has two impressive centre-backs, both coming from Senegal.

* Uremu Michael Egbeta and Efe Yarhere have both returned to Warri Wolves FC, apparently because of some formal mistakes with their registration papers. As far as I know, well-known playmaker Sunday Mba has never featured for Rangers International FC in a league match, apparently for the same reason.

* Chisom Egbuchulam, a right-winger or striker, was snapped from amateur club Disdevt FC before the season. The youngster has been a true revelation this season, most likely having featured in more than 20 matches.

* Powerful striker Alhaji Gero has joined Swedish top level side Östers IF and has already played three league matches for his new club.

* Solomon Jabason, a strong defensive midfielder, never broke through at Rangers and is now playing for Wikki Tourists FC, his former club.

* Winger Bola Lekan is an interesting newcomer at Rangers. Lekan is an quite experienced performer, having featured for Ocean Boys FC for several seasons. Lekan also had a spell in Albania with KS Bylis Ballsh before joining Rangers.

* From my point of view, big striker Chinonso Christian Obiozor is one of the most interesting players at the club. Obiozor, formerly of Shooting Stars FC, has scored three goals in 10-15 matches.

* Chinedu Udeagha Sunday, the highly creative midfielder, is currently in top form. Sunday, formerly of Ranchers Bees FC, has a bright future and could be set for a bigger league rather sooner than later. Sunday has been pretty much ever-present this season. The picture shows Sunday in action and was found on MTN Football.

* Defensive midfielder Ugonna Uzochukwu is another key player at the club, having featured in approximately 25 matches. Uzochukwu has an impressive work-rate and is invaluable for his team with his powerful running, hard-tackles and ball-winning ability.
