Rangers player Joe Aribo has been included in the WhoScored Scottish Premiership team of the month after some excellent performances in November [WhoScored].

His Rangers teammate James Tavernier is also included in the team; however, it’s the Nigeria international who was probably the most impressive player in the league during the previous month.

This is certainly backed up by WhoScored as they give Aribo a rating of 8.4, the joint highest in the squad alongside Celtic’s Jota.

Of the six goals that the 25-year-old has been involved in for Rangers this term, three came during November.


He scored and provided an assist against Ross County in a 4-2 win at the beginning of the month.

Then, in Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first league match in charge of the side against Livingston, Aribo scored a wonderful goal to increase Rangers’ lead and the game was eventually won 3-1.

He has quite simply been our stand-out performer so far this season.

The previous two campaigns have seen the player provide plenty of wonderful touches and the odd excellent match, but Aribo has added a layer of consistency this season which has made all the difference.

The club has a real diamond in the side and the key thing for van Bronckhorst is to deploy him in a role from which he can cause the most damage.

In the Dutchman’s first three matches, this seems to be working a treat after a slight tactical change following Steven Gerrard’s departure.

The Nigeria international seems to be relishing this newfound creative freedom and long may it continue.

Meanwhile, Rangers will need to keep Kemar Roofe fighting fit if the side are to retain their title.
