Disappointed Rangers star calls Tannadice draw an 'important' point

Rangers star Joe Aribo has expressed his frustration and disappointment at yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Dundee United – but insists the point that the Light Blues gained was an “important” one in the title race.

The draw saw the Gers lose ground to Celtic at the top of the table, slipping three points behind Ange Postecoglou’s side after Aribo levelled Ross Graham’s headed opener.

The Nigerian international thinks the Gers did what they had to when it came to making chances at Tannadice but just couldn’t find a way past Terrors’ keeper Benji Siegrist.

“We are really frustrated and disappointed, Aribo told Rangers TV.

“We’ve had a lot of chances and played very well, but the result has just not shown that. It is very upsetting.

“We had to take more shots, we needed to get the ball in and around the area and make it harder for their defenders.

“That is what we had to do in the second half and we did.

“We just couldn’t get lucky enough to get the second goal that we were pushing for.

“There were a lot of good moments in the game today, but we need to be a bit more ruthless in front of goal, and take our chances that come along.”

While the Gers fans are rightly annoyed at yesterday’s result, Aribo thinks it was “better than nothing” heading back down the A9 with a point.

With attentions now turning to Thursday’s Europa League clash with Dortmund at Ibrox, Aribo insisted the Rangers stars will dust themselves off ahead of a massive game later this week, adding: “It’s definitely an important point. We are going to keep pushing for every single game that we play. We want to win every single game.

“Today is one that is disappointing, but to take away a point instead of getting zero is better than nothing in the circumstances.

“We need to dust ourselves off and recover and look towards Thursday night, because it is going to be a massive game and we need to be ready to go.”
