Rangers fans laud Aribo after clip of sublime skill vs Ross County emerges

Rangers fans have praised Joe Aribo after footage of him in action against Ross County emerged on social media via the Official Rangers Twitter.

The Nigeria international was one of several standout performers on the night, registering an assist for Alfredo Morelos’ second goal and playing a part in two others.

His overall display drew praise from supporters, following criticism from some quarters that he hadn’t been showing enough in recent weeks.

It seemed encouragement from his manager to get forward, helped, though, with this one of his best games in Light Blue.

For a rangy player standing at over 6ft, the 23-year-old has incredibly quick feet. That’s been apparent since he arrived at Ibrox and as his confidence grew in Dingwall, we saw more and more examples of eye-catching skills.

In this particular instance, despite being just a foot or two inside the touchline, he confidently shifts the ball between both feet to evade Sean Kelly, before cutting back inside and nutmegging a second onrushing Staggies player.

It was a stunning piece of quality and it looks even better on loop.

Unsurprisingly, then, plenty of Bears raved about the footage.

Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:
