Rangers secured top spot in the Europa League group stages with a comfortable 2-0 win away to Lech Poznan on Thursday – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter hailed Joe Aribo for his individual performance.
Steven Gerrard’s side continued their unbeaten run this season with a victory in Poland, which was yet another reminder that they could be a serious threat to go deep into this season’s European competition.
Cedric Itten and Ianis Hagi were both on the scoresheet for the Scottish giants to ensure they qualify for the Round of 32 as top of the group above second-placed Benfica, which was an outcome that most neutrals doubted before a ball was kicked.
It means that they will be seeded in Monday’s Europa League draw and will avoid the teams dropping down from the Champions League.
A selection of Rangers supporters on social media picked out Aribo as a major positive from the midweek victory in Europe.
The attacking midfielder was extremely dangerous cutting infield off the right flank against Lech Poznan and was given a freedom to roam at times as well.
He missed a spell earlier in the season with an ankle problem, but in the past month he’s been getting back to his very best and he’s a big part of the side at Ibrox when he’s firing with plenty of creativity.
Here are some Rangers fans discussing Aribo:
Joe aribo is actually the greatest footballer of all time

I think Aribo is doing so well and I don’t think he is 100% yet. What a player

Aribo and Kamara together is absolutely ridiculous

I've watched great Rangers players over the years . Gazza , Laudrup , McCoist , Hatley, De Boer , Lovenkrands.
Aribo would walk into any 11 in my opinion
