‘Aribo Is Premier League Class’ —Ex-Rangers Star

‘Aribo Is Premier League Class’  —Ex-Rangers Star

Former Rangers star Greg Stewart has described Joe Aribo as Premier League class and that he would not be surprised if he eventually leaves for the English topflight.

Despite a disappointing 3-3 draw at Ross County which saw Rangers’ lead at the top cut down to just two points, Aribo was impressive for Giovanni van Bronckhorst men.

The midfielder provided the assist for Rangers’ opener scored by Manchester United on loan forward Amad Diallo.

And speaking on Aribo’s possible move to the Premier League, Stewart said:“Does it surprise me that teams want to sign Joe? Absolutely not. Nothing surprises me with Joe to be honest,” Stewart was quoted on dailyrecord.co.uk.

“I’ve seen him close up and know what he can do.

“And for me, he can only get better and better.

“Joe has the ability to score goals, create chances and dominate a midfield. He can play in a variety of positions – I even remember him playing at left-back against Braga and scoring a goal.

“He has so much versatility that you could ask him to play anywhere on the park and he’d just get on with it.

“His ability with the ball is frightening.

“Those big dangly legs and long arms can be deceptive. He looks like a big octopus at times with those limbs everywhere.

“But his skills are incredible. You can’t get the ball off him, he’ll just dribble past you.

“If he’s in the box, no-one can touch him. He’ll either go past you or you’ll foul him. His feet are just that good.

“Is he Premier League class? I think so.

“If a top-flight team from down south comes calling it’s difficult to turn them down. For Rangers, it will be hard too considering they only signed him for £300,000.

“But I can’t see them selling him for any less than £15million. Maybe £20m.

“He’s a Nigerian international, a league winner who has played regularly in Europe these last three years.

“You see what players go for down south and for me it would be a no brainer for Rangers if an English Premier League club comes offering silly money.

“I’d love to see him stay at Ibrox but I understand this is how football works. If you’re doing well, teams will take an interest.”
