“Big Joe Aribo – He has got sexy feet”
That was the humorous verdict of Rangers squad member Greg Stewart when asked on Rangers TV to name his ‘Most skillful teammate?’, revealing his admiration for his fellow Ger.
The popular Nigerian international is renowned for his close control and manipulation of the ball, including when he appears to have run it too far.
Last season, he dazzled and danced through the Braga defence at Ibrox and that has continued into his second season in Glasgow as the former Charlton man has consolidated his position in the team.
Whilst there is still room for improvement and consistency to add to Aribo’s quality, he is a very important element of Steven Gerrard’s squad.

After a bout of sickness ruled him out of Nigeria’s second AFCON qualifier last week, Joe Aribo has recovered sufficiently to be in consideration for the Scottish Cup tie against Cove Rangers on Sunday.
He was pictured at training on Friday as the international players rejoined the rest of the squad, to prepare for the game against the League One opponents.
