Rangers fans can’t get enough of Ibrox man of the moment Joe Aribo as the Nigerian international midfielder once again showed the quality of his first touch v St Johnstone.
Every game now the 25-year-old midfielder appears to dominate proeedings and Super Joe was once again Man of the Match in the 2-0 victory over the Saintees.
Joe Aribo was all over Ibrox Park to impress against Callum Davidson’s side, his movement, technical ability and directness a handful for the St Johnstone defence throughout.
The attacking midfielder rasped one off the outside of the post from 30 yards in the first-half but it was a splendid moment of technical brilliance which caught the eye of supporters post-match.
Joe Aribo with moment of brilliance in Rangers win v St Johnstone
We’re used to Joe Aribo plucking the ball out of the air – see his most recent goal against Hearts – and the ex-Charlton star repeated the feat with a stunning touch in the win over St Johnstone.
Aribo takes the ball down perfectly before switching it between his feet, shimmying past a St Johnstone player and finding Fashion Sakala with a pass.
It is a *chef’s kiss* moment of skill from Man of the Match Joe Aribo and fans have been fawning over it and the midfielder ever since:
Rangers fans certainly have a new hero in the attacking midfielder and Joe Aribo was also selected for post-match duties after the win over St Johnstone.
Speaking about his performances – and that touch – the Nigerian international thanked God for his talents, and so do Rangers fans everywhere.
“It’s funny because in training I just kick balls in the air,” said Aribo [RangersTV].
“I was lucky to just control it, bring it down and I slipped in Fash after so I was happy to do that.
“I’m just playing freely. I don’t know to be honest (how I’m playing so well). I’m just playing freely and I’m thankful to God for my talents.”
Next up for Rangers is the visit of Dundee United and fans will be hoping for yet another Joe Aribo show as the Arabs travel to Ibrox.
However, the match is in doubt ahead of the Saturday 3pm kick off with Dundee United in the midst of Covid-19 issues.
