Rangers sent themselves top of the Scottish Premiership with an emphatic 3-0 win at Ibrox on Wednesday night – and a number of fans were left lauding the performance of Joe Aribo.
The Gers seemed to make a slow start against St Johnstone. But they ultimately ran out comfortable winners to continue their flawless start to the new domestic season.
Steven Gerrard will surely be happy with a number of displays on show. Borna Barisic was outstanding as the left-back scored the opener and set up the second.
But there were plenty of supporters who suggested that they saw another superb performance from Aribo.
The Nigeria international enjoyed a mixed first campaign at Ibrox. There were certainly signs of his brilliance along the way, but he sometimes struggled to make an impact in games.
And some of the fans are now confident that the 24-year-old is about to enjoy a breakout year for the Gers.
Aribo played a part in the second goal. It was his midfield-splitting pass that found Ianis Hagi before Barisic was played in down the left flank.
And he rounded off the scoring against the Saints at the start of the second-half. He got to the near post to head home a James Tavernier corner and make the points safe.
And several fans took to social media to heap praise on Aribo. They suggested that he was excellent in their latest win and they are optimistic that he is going to be a game-changer for Gerrard’s men over the course of the campaign.
Here is how some of the supporters reacted to his display…
Joe Aribo has the potential to go to the very top. He was class as always tonight!👌🏼
