Joe Aribo opens up on comparisons with Patrick Viera and Dele Alli

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.

The former Charlton midfielder told how he has been compared to Patrick Viera and Dele Alli but wouldn’t make any of his own.
“I’m a dynamic player. I can get up and down the pitch and get at opposition in a one-v-one,” Aribo said, as quoted by Football Scotland.
“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.”
The midfielder is Rangers seventh signing of the summer and is one that seems to have really got Gers fans excited.

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.
