Rangers: Fans continue to mock Lee Bowyer as Joe Aribo scores for Nigeria

Joe Aribo continues to make a mockery of Lee Bowyer’s criticism of his move to Rangers with his second international goal on just his second cap against a star-studded Brazil on Sunday evening.

Bowyer had said of Aribo’s move to Rangers:

“It is about progression for him. So it’s a shame if he gets pushed to somewhere where it is not going to benefit him in his football career. If he goes to Rangers that is not the right place for him to go for his football career”.

It’s safe to say that Aribo’s career has gone from strength-to-strength since he signed for the Light Blues, scoring in both the Europa League and at international level after being called up to the Super Eagles squad this year.

Bowyer continued when Aribo first signed by saying:

“It doesn’t make sense on the football side. When people from England go and play for Celtic and Rangers it is at the end of their careers. That’s because it is very rare you get a move from Rangers to the Premier League, and I don’t mean any disrespect by that. They might go from Rangers to the Championship, very rarely is it to the Premier League. For me he should stay in England and keep progressing”.

This time last year Aribo was playing in League 1 for Charlton, and now he is scoring goals against some of the finest players in world football. After all, it was Paris Saint Germain’s Marquinhos and Thiago Silva that he ghosted past to score Nigeria’s opener, exalted company indeed.

In true social media fashion, Rangers fans took to twitter to remind Bowyer of his claims during the summer and just how ridiculous they were.

How good a decision was it from Aribo to move to Ibrox? Join the discussion by commenting below…
