Rangers fans were discussing Joe Aribo’s attempts at doing a viral challenge after the club posted a clip of the player on their Twitter page.
The midfielder follows in the footsteps of some of his fellow athletes and coaches, who have tried to juggle a toilet roll in a bid to beat boredom in something labelled the ‘stay at home’ challenge (via The Mirror). Aribo performed a clean attempt as he kept the loo roll up before adding in a skill move.
He’s been a crucial part of Steven Gerrard’s midfield this season, appearing in 49 games across all competitions. It’s easy to see why he has made some many appearances with the £1.17m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, Nigeria international having scored nine times and assisted a further eight goals. The 6-foot ace has also been incredibly versatile, featuring in six different positions, including both wings across a front-three. Supporters were talking about his efforts at keeping the household item up as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets:
