Rangers fans on Twitter delighted by Joe Aribo in 3-0 cup win

Rangers booked their place in the last eight of the Scottish League Cup with a routine, if slightly disappointing, 3-0 win over East Fife – and Gers fans on Twitter singled out midfielder Joe Aribo for plaudits following his performance against the Fifers.

Aribo celebrated his recent call-up to the Nigerian international squad by netting the third goal as the Gers dispatched the League One side and set up a quarter-final clash with Livingston.

The former Charlton star has impressed since his move to Ibrox and has already notched four goals this season as he makes Addicks legends Lee Bowyer and Chris Powell look silly for claiming he’s made a mistake joining the Gers.

After playing 90 minutes at Bayview, it seems unlikely that Aribo will start Thursday’s Europa League clash with Legia Warsaw but his performance will surely have impressed Steven Gerrard.

Gers fans on Twitter were really impressed with how Aribo controlled the midfield and was head and shouders above engine-room partners Greg Docherty and Glen Kamara – with one saying Aribo was “untouchable.”

Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
