Aribo Bags 6th League Goal As Rangers Claim Away Win, Stretch Lead At The Top 

Joe Aribo was on target as Rangers beat Hearts 2-0 away in Sunday’s Scottish Premiership and extend their lead over rivals Celtic, Completesports.com reports.

It was Aribo’s sixth goal in 17 league appearances for the champions this season.


Aribo has now scored more league goals (3) than any other Rangers player since Giovanni van Bronckhorst took over last month.

The 25-year-old doubled Rangers’ lead in the 14th minute after Alfredo Morelos opened scoring in the ninth minute.

A great long-ball from Connor Goldson found the Super Eagles midfielder, who took a perfect first-touch to control the ball before slotting into the back of the net.

The win means Rangers now on 42 points, go seven points clear of rivals Celtic at the top of the table, with the Bhoys in action later on Sunday afternoon.

Also in action for Rangers was Calvin Bassey while Leon Balogun is still out with injury.

    Well done Aribo! keep the flag flying!

  • Aribo the EPL is waiting for you because that is where you belong.

  • This Is how aribo should be used. Upfront in attacking midfield. Not back deep in holding midfield.
    Also, a lot of praise has gone to Calvin bassey for standing in for leon balogun in defense but I have to say in the highlights I watched, bassey is still learning, he isnt there yet. Far from it. He was turned a few times, allowed shots he shouldn’t have, almost scored another own goal, so many errors, but the good news is his team didn’t concede a goal. He isnt a centre back yet, he is still learning very much.

      Very right @Sportsfan. Rohr limits him in the Super Eagles by playing him as a defensive midfielder in a double pivot. However, a lot of misinformed Nigerians expect him to be playing like Okocha because he wears the number 10 shirt. This just confirms a lot of the Super Eagles fans know nothing about football. I think his best position is as a 10 and not as a 6 in which Rohr plays him currently.

  • Which six did Rohr play him, isn’t it the same position he played in his first match against Brazil that he has been playing since? He had not been stamping his authority in national colour simple maybe due to the rigour of Africa football. The league he is playing is even flatter to deceive to be candid let him move to Epl and let’s see how it goes.

    That was a striker’s goal by Aribo. It was all about the control. It set him up for the finish.
    We need more of this in the SE jersey.

    Another good performance from Bassey. He’s definitely comfortable in the center back role.
    Anyone see the slaloming run towards the end of the game? Bassey got hold of the ball close to his 18 yard box, and in Balogun-esque fashion, started striding forward, gliding past several opponents before finding himself with a shooting chance which he failed to keep on target. It would have been one heck of an individual goal if he had scored!

    Bassey can be very useful in the SE as a wing back, or an overlapping fullback. His pace and dribbling can be utilized to great effect, and he’s a good crosser of the ball.

    Rohr has been sacked and The NFF have appointed Augustine Eguavoen as the interim Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles
