Aribo Admits Drop In Form, Eager To Come Better With More Goals, Assists

Rangers midfielder, Joe Aribo, has admitted that his form has dipped after the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, but is eager to defy the setback starting from the Gers’ Scottish Premier League home game today [Saturday] against Aberdeen at the Ibrox Stadium.

Prior to the AFCON 2021, Aribo was impressive scoring goals and recording assists which gave Rangers a big boost atop the Scottish Premiership table, now the the Gers have slipped to second place, three points behind Celtic.

Aribo expresses his optimism of regaining impressive form in an interview with Rangers.co.uk, reiterating that he can turn out better and believes that a strong performance against Aberdeen would see the team bag the three points.

“For me personally, I wanted to get more numbers in terms of goals and assists,” Aribo said.

“I’ve not been at my best compared to how I was before I left for the internationals.

“In football, you have these dips in form in your season, but hopefully, I can move past that and, come tomorrow [today vs Aberdeen], see a strong performance and move forward from that.

“I just need to work my hardest to get back into form and that’s what I’m doing.”

The Nigernatia international added: “Every single day I want to be my best when I’m on the pitch,so that’s what I’m hoping to do.

“Of course, the attackers here want to get numbers on the board, but the most important thing is the three points, that’s the main thing.

“It’s nice to have because it is a big moment to step up,we need big characters in the dressing room.

” In the next games coming up,we hope that we’ll be there and we’ll get three points.

“That’s what we want from every single match we play in.”

    Don’t be too hard on yourself.

    You know you’ve got it in you, self-criticism sometimes helps though

    Aribo Arriba!!! Aribo Arriba! You have never played Kerewa Kerewa football. You have our support. We genuine Super Eagles know your worth. We will never drop you from our starting line up just because you are going through hard times. We never discourage hard working Super Eagles players just because of dip in form. Aribo the great, march on to qualify Nigeria for the World Cup. Despite their best intentions, you will be the first name on the team sheet. Evil fans with evil intentions. Lolzzzz Lolzzzz. Heaven bless Aribo and all deserving Super Eagles players.

    I think he’s done well in the few matches he’s played for Rangers after the Afcon.
    It must be said though that his form seems to rise with Rangers and dip with Nigeria, loooool!
    But seriously, I don’t see any dip in form. Just same old Aribo in action. Maybe it’s just me!
    Good to see Amoo invited to give Aribo some good old-fashioned competition in the SE.
    Hopefully, they will motivate each other to greater heights.
