Former Asante Kotoko defender Abdul Baba Rahman came off the bench to play for Schalke 04 in their 1-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Chelsea loanee was brought on in the 16th minute as a replacement for Moroccan Hamza Mendyl.

Baba Rahman had not appeared on the Schalke matchday team-sheet since warming the bench for the Gelsenkirchen side in their 3-1 loss against FC Porto in late November.

After being left out of the squad for their 2-1 home loss against Borussia Dortmund during the weekend, he was named in the squad for the home tie against the Russians.
