Joe Aribo delights with goal in Rangers win

Aribo celebrates

GLASGOW Rangers Joe Aribo has hailed his team’s effort after he scored in his side’s 4-2 victory over Ross County on Sunday.

Aribo opened scores for Rangers in the 15th minute.

Speaking to Rangers TV, Aribo praised his team, speaking about the importance of goal scoring to the team’s  chances of winning their games and doing well in the league.


“The boys are buzzing. We knew what we had to do today and put in a strong performance. We are definitely happy that we were able to do that.

“I have (scored a goal like that before). I did it last season at home, it was a similar position and similar finish.

“I think when we come to places like this, we need to start fast and be on top. We just needed that breakthrough and that goal so it was massive. We needed it to get into our stride.

“We wanted to score more goals and keep a clean sheet, of course, but it was good to see the rhythm, the passes, there was a lot of interchange today between the midfield and strikers. That is what we need in the upcoming games.

“It is massive (to have that desire). When you have subs coming off the bench and giving their all, it is good to see.

“It is a squad game, not just the starting eleven. Everyone has to play their part and it is massive. It is amazing to see.

“We need to do everything we can to be the best that we can be. We can’t make any excuses for what is to come so we need to make sure we are ready to go,” Aribo said.

Meanwhile, Rangers coach Steven Gerrard has hailed after his goal on Sunday.

“Yeah, I think that has been coming. Joe was a little bit frustrated through the week but that is what Joe Aribo is all about. Driving up to people, being aggressive, breaking the rules.

“It was a fantastic finish and we want him to keep doing that, we want him to keep scoring goals and has got the license in the midfield three when we name that three that he can go forward and be a bit more ambitious,” Gerrard said.
