Aribo Named Glasgow Rangers Second Best Summer Signing

Aribo Named Glasgow Rangers Second Best Summer Signing

Nigeria midfielder Joe Aribo has been named Glasgow Rangers second best summer signing following his impressive start to life at the club, reports Completesports.com.

The Scottish giants recruited 11 players in another hectic summer window as Steven Gerrard tooled up for a massive season at home and abroad.

Majority of the newcomers have had to wait for their chance with Aribo, Sheyi Ojo and Steven Davis the regular starters.

“Lee Bowyer insisted he made the wrong move for his career by joining Rangers but Aribo is quickly proving the Charlton boss wrong. He’s scored big goals in the Europa League and earned his first two caps for Nigeria, grabbing two goals. The latest over the weekend was against Brazil but his performances for Rangers have been equally impressive,”reads a report in dailyrecord.co.uk.

“Minus a huge blip against Celtic when he played wide left, his unorthodox style of play has been successful. Able to hold onto possession in the tightest of spaces and with an eye or goal as well he has fast become a fans’ favourite.

“He’s still young and developing his game but he’s clearly going to be a big player for Rangers.”

    This is a guy who could slot in into any team mid field in the world and yet turned out for us but Tammy and Tomori feel they r too big for us.I wish them well

     
    • Oga Asoko, please don’t mention those two brats. I just dey pity dem because partisan English fans go moo dem. 

       
    • Me i wish them bad,because the best wishes i have is not enough for my dear brothers in super eagles,lets fly higher super eagles

      Asoko, it was CZECH-MATE for Tammy and his England colleagues on Tammy’s 2-minute debut. Obviously, Southgate’s mission as per Tammy was to cap tie him in that match. And with England’s performance in the 6 nil demolition of Bulgaria, Southgate is likely to stick with those guys. Just too many guys ahead of Tammy in the pecking order at the moment. Meanwhile, Aribo and co are flying high like Eagles, holding mighty Brazil to a draw. As for Tomori, who is he going to bench among our center backs? Omeruo, Ekong, Ajayi, Balogun and Awaziem are all better than him, in my honest opinion. If England doesn’t work out, he better keep his Canada options open, lol!!!

    A great addition to the super eagles.Good scouting work to unearth such a gem.
    Our scouts have to dig profoundly at the lower leagues of the English football to discover fantastic players like Aribo.It’s becoming difficult to lure this lads when they are successful in the premiership where the eagle eyes of Southgate is always on the prowl.
    Meanwhile,against African oppositions we are yet to see how this good player will fare.I hope he comes good in November and score a couple of goals for the super eagles,as we look to qualifying for the the next Afcon in Cameroon.

     
    • Fantastic point GT.

      Timing is everything. If Aribo was playing for Chelsea and was on the cusp of England invitation, would he have chosen Nigeria?

      Take nothing away from the lad,I absolutely love him but I was just building on your point on the timings of asking these players to commit to us.

       
      • Greenturf 1 month ago

        To answer that question @deo,I think England would be hard to ignore for this young fellow.
        Like you rightly said,timing is everything and we undoubtedly got our timing right.

        @Deo I believe it is not just about timing but upbringing. Some players have been raised to see themselves more English than Nigerian while others have been raised to see themselves more as Nigerian than England. Aribo has longed declared that he will play for Nigeria and not England. He is usually a guy that knows what he wants. He decided to play for Rangers even after he was discouraged by Charlton boss who told him that it was not wise for an English player to go play for Rangers when he could easily get Premiership clubs to play for, that he was going to kill hi career. But he ignored and went to Rangers.
        Iwobi was also raised to see himself as a Nigerian and his father took him to the U 23 camp for trials even before he was called up by Nff.

        So you cannot force a player who does not value his root to player for his country of Origin. As for Tammy and Tomori, they have made their decision and we need to respect it and wish them the best, while we enjoy the services of the likes of Aribo, Ekong, Iwobi, Aina, Balogun and even Okoye.

      Very true @ Greenturf, there are loads of fantastic Nigerian born players in the lower leagues in England. The problem most of these lads have is they are at the mercy of only the English agents that know them. These English agents will always give priority to the English players while use black players for drug deals. All Man dem wey hate d truth will remain blind forever.

       
    • You need to see how Abraham walked away in anger after he was an unused subs, in England thumping of Bulgaria 6-0 yesterday, I know he is inwardly blaming himself.

       
  • Guys let’s not blame tomori because he wasn’t invited by Nigeria at all,meanwhile he has 3 country he can represent,as luck may have it England invited him…so he’s not to be blame unlike your favorite Tammy

     
    • He is sir, as a dual citizen, and some one that has played grade level football for another country, before you can be invited, you have to show commitment by applying to fifa to switch allegiance it’s only after that you can be invited. Iwobi, Victor Moses, Ola Aina, Semi Ajayi, all did that and presently Chuba Akpon, and Sheyi Ojo are doing that. So it’s Tomori n Abraham clear intention to ditch Nigeria.

      Pure excuse. The word “declare” is understood by every English speaking individual. Let him go to Canada, we don’t need both of them. It’s absolutely disgusting seeing a black person,celebrating their association with white as though they are superior. I spit out such detasteful individuals. They ve got no class. The remain follow follow forever.

  • Wow Ikeben, really valuable insights; your references to Iwobi and Aribo just put the icing on the cherry of the cake of your perspective.

    I quite agree.

    Cheers bro.

    In the midst of much crass that have sadly cluttered this forum in recent times, it is refreshing to note that we still very much have intellectual and analytical minds out there after all.

    Top man!

     
    • @Deo, I follow your posts most of the time and I must say that your comments are generally spot on. I love reading your posts. But in recent time you have been insulting people a lot. I know it is difficult not to insult people sometimes when you expect they should reason in a certain way but I believe you can still try to put yourself together and make those valuable comments without insulting anyone. Please, I am appealing to you, do not allow those insults to eclipse those beautiful points you are making in your posts. Thank you.

       
      • Thanks Debo.

        I will take your feedback on board.

        Cheers

        Deo

    ARIBALL DE NIGERIA STALLION. Steven Gerrard knows what he saw in him that made him bring him to Rangers. Game recognize game, baller recognize baller. With his performances against Ukraine and Brazil, everyone can see that this guy is a BIG GAME PLAYER. Rangers will be up for a fight to hold on to the lad. If he leaves, I would like him to go to a league where he can hone his already impressive technical skills. Spain, Germany and France are good destinations. These are good environments for a young player to learn and grow. While Aribo is deserving of much praise, I would desist from pressuring the boy. Days will come when he will struggle in games. We must be patient with him, and not just him. All the other young lads as well. Our young lads have the two keys of success in this life – humility and determination. Osimhen is a perfect example of this! With time, these group of guys will achieve something huge!
