Flocking to Twitter, many Rangers fans were left unimpressed with the performance of winger Joe Aribo as Steven Gerrard’s side fell to a 2-0 Europa League group stage defeat against Lyon.
The Teddy Bears were looking to get their 21/22 European campaign off to a solid start after comfortably clinching the SPFL crown last season and ending Celtic’s total dominance over Scotland.
Who was worst for Rangers vs Lyon?
Gerrard’s men made history last year but could go one better with a dream run in Europe, aspirations which seemingly took a real dent as the Glasgow giants succumbed to a 2-0 loss at Ibrox.
Karl Toko Ekambi first found the net for Lyon, curling a venomous shot into the far corner, with Gers ace James Tavernier then going on to unluckily deflect the ball into his own net for their second.
On a regrettable night overall for Gerrard, one man who certainly couldn’t escape the wrath of supporters was Aribo.
Many Gers fans took to social media and voiced their opinions on his outing, with the Nigeria international among the lowest-rated performers on the night.
Indeed, he had just one shot on target, won 3/10 ground duels and lost the ball 12 times before being hauled off by Gerrard (SofaScore).
Taking this into account, it’s little wonder Teddy Bears weren’t overly pleased.

Gers fans slam Aribo
“Worst performance I’ve seen”
“Really poor from Joe which is unusual”
“Garbage. A few need dropped. No heart no fight. Pathetic. Tav Barasic Kent Davis Aribo. Not good enough.”
“Morelos dealt fine with the defenders, it’s a shame kent, aribo were hiding as usual”
“Missing Ryan Jack big time. Aribo and Kent a waste of a jersey again. Too slow in movement, pressing and passing
The result and performance wasn’t a surprise.
We are regressing instead of progressing”
“Aribo was dreadful tonight. So many times he gave the ball away.”
“I think that was Davis, Aribo and Kamaras worst game in a while. Kent is still miles off it .I thought Lundstrem was decent but that’s only my opinion”
“Kent aribo and barisic absolutely miles away tonight, lundstrum the only decent performance for me”
