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.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
