Aribo Returns To Rangers Training After Sustaining Head Injury

Nigeria midfielder Joe Aribo returned to training with Scottish side Rangers on Wednesday morning wearing a skull cap following the brutal head knock he suffered against Livingston last week, reports Completesports.com.

Aribo , 22, required 20 stitches to his head after being injured by Ricki Lamie in the Betfred Cup quarter final in West Lothian.

The former Charlton Athletic player was seen bleeding heavily before he was taken off after half an hour at Livi.

He sat out the Rangers’ 5-0 win against Aberdeen last weekend and is expected to miss this week’s Europa League clash with Young Boys and Sunday’s Scottish Premier League game against Hamilton.

Accoding to a report in Daily Record, Aribo trained with his Rangers teammates at Auchenhowie Wednesday morning with his injury protected by both the protective head gear and bandaging underneath.

The midfielder is now in a race to be fit for Nigeria’s international friendly match against Brazil in Singapore on October 13.

    I’m happy to see aribo training again with rangers, I was thinking he won’t be back in time for our match against Brazil, we really need his pace and quick thinking in that match .I will go for a midfield trio of ndidi, aribo and iwobi for creativity.

     
  • I’m happy he is back God will give him more strength in Jesus name. The best thing is for him to rest very well. The SE match with Brazil is not a must. It is a friendly match.

    God bless me.
    God bless Aribo.
    God bless Nigeria.
