Rangers booked their place in the Europa League last 32 with a draw against Young Boys at Ibrox tonight – and Gers fans were left drooling over Joe Aribo’s performance.

The Nigeria international midfielder had arguably his best performance for Rangers since his summer move from Charlton and fans were quick to praise his showing.

Aribo was making his first start in the group stage as the Gers needed to secure a single point to qualify and had several chances of his own to score after Alfredo Morelos opened the scoring.

With Steven Davis out injured, it has given Aribo a chance to shine and the Super Eagles star has impressed in a more advanced role in recent weeks.

The former Charlton star looked composed and committed as he showed excellent feet and used the ball brilliantly as the Light Blues banished any lingering Hampden hangover.

Despite conceding a late own-goal, the Gers will take their place in Monday’s draw and Aribo will be hoping he can keep his place in the side after impressing.

Fans on Twitter were left raving about his performance – with one calling him an “absolute menace” for Gerrard’s side.

Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans:
