Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has admitted that he wants to be a “goalscoring midfielder” at Ibrox – as he opened up on comparisons with Patrick Viera and Dele Alli.
Aribo completed his move to Ibrox yesterday and wants to contribute regularly with goals for Steven Gerrard’s side after penning a four-year deal.
“I’m a dynamic player. I can get up and down the pitch and get at opposition in a one-v-one,”
“I can pick a pass and find the back of the net.
“I can’t compare myself to anyone, but a lot of people say Patrick Vieira and my old manager at Charlton says Dele Alli.
“My aim last season at Charlton was to score 10 goals and I achieved that.
“I want to be a goalscoring midfielder. I take pride and joy in scoring goals.”
After helping Charlton win promotion to the Championship last season, Aribo should have a big part to play for Gerrard’s side in their bid for the title.
If he’s half as good as Viera or Alli then Rangers have won a watch with the signing after landing him for around £300,000 in development fees.
