Glasgow Rangers continued their fantastic pre-season form on Wednesday in their latest warm-up match.
The Gers played Motherwell at Ibrox – albeit after a two-hour delay as the 54-time Scottish champions waited for their test results to come in – and they put their rivals to the sword with a 4-0 victory thanks to goals from Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi, Joe Aribo and an own goal. This win follows their success in the Veolia Trophy, where they beat Lyon and Nice 2-0, whilst they also defeated Hamilton 2-1 before their visit to France.
In this game, Aribo was in stunning form, and his goal was fantastically well taken – he showed his impressive control inside the box before he coolly slotted past the keeper. The Gers fans were clearly taken aback by his display overall, and they were quick to wax lyrical about the 24-year-old – one fan even said he was worth £20m whilst another compared him to fellow midfielder Paul Pogba, suggesting he is the ‘player Paul Pogba wants to be’.
Has Aribo been a success at Ibrox?
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Joe Aribo looks like the player Paul Pogba wants to be…
