Rangers attacking midfielder Joe Aribo was the best player on the park as the Light Blues sealed a convincing 4-1 win over Dundee United on Sunday night.
The Nigerian international provided the assist for Ianis Hagi‘s opener ten minutes before half time. He then unleashed a superb strike just after the interval to put the Gers 3-0 up.
Aribo was also excellent in possession throughout the 90 minutes, capping a superb performance, and fans on Twitter were quick to credit the 24-year-old for his display:
Big Joe deserved MoM today, that’s the best I have seen him. 🇬🇧🇬🇧

It is difficult to argue with those saying that it was his best performance in a Rangers shirt. The Nigeran’s inconsistency can be frustrating at times but he showed off all of his talents at the weekend.
If Aribo can play like that on a regular basis, there is no telling how far he can go in the game and supporters will be glad he is now realising his full potential.
