A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to laud Joe Aribo after the midfielder produced an excellent performance as the Gers beat Motherwell 2-0 on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s men scored a goal either side of the break to win a feisty encounter at Fir Park. Alfredo Morelos was controversially sent off for the visitors, with his second yellow card coming in the wake of the celebration of his second-half goal.
But Rangers saw the game out with an impressive performance. And Aribo seemed to be one of the players who impressed the fans the most on social media.
It has not been an easy time for the Nigeria international since he arrived at Ibrox in the summer. There have certainly been glimpses of his quality, but he has not performed on a consistent basis.
However, some supporters clearly feel that the move to the right of the front three has worked wonders for Aribo. He has looked dangerous when running with the ball, and he was not afraid to get stuck in.
Aribo looks to be benefiting from having more space than he would on the left-hand side of the midfield three. And there have been signs that he is forming a very good partnership with James Tavernier down Rangers’s right flank.
Here is what some of the supporters made of Aribo’s performance in the fairly comfortable win…
That was a very tough match. Not helped by the officiating either. The likes of Arfield & Aribo get special mentions as they have ran themselves into ground in the last 7 days. Not happening for Kent just now. Sure it’ll come. 👏🏻
