Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has shrugged off Charlton manager Lee Bowyer’s comments about his move to Ibrox and insists he made the right decision moving to Glasgow.
Bowyer has repeatedly criticised the move and thinks Aribo has harmed his future prospects by choosing to move to Scotland.
“He pretty much said, ‘Don’t go there for the good of your career’, but I believe I made the right decision in coming here,”
“I didn’t argue with him, I shrugged it off as I felt this was the best move for my career. After speaking to the gaffer and seeing the size of the club it was a no-brainer.
“I spoke to Lee in person to tell him what I had decided and he didn’t say much at the time. I could tell he was upset, but that was more because I was leaving Charlton.”
Aribo made his competitive debut as a second-half substitute in the win over St. Joseph’s and will be hoping he can force his way into the starting XI quickly.
The prospect of playing European football and challenging for trophies is a huge opportunity for the midfielder to progress his career.
If Aribo is anywhere near as good as Bowyer has claimed he is, then Rangers have won a landed a real gem in the midfielder.
