My wonder goal came from extra trainingAribo

Published by The Nation on Mon, 22 Feb 2021


Rangers midfielder has revealed his wonder goal against Dundee United in Sundays Scottish Premiership game came as a result of extra training sessions.The 24-year-old was a delight to watch in the encounter, dictating the pace and marshalling the midfield to help his side secure a 4-1 victory over the Terrors.The Nigeria international scored a breathtaking goal in the game, firing a left-footed strike beyond the reach of goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist and was deservedly handed the man-of-the-match award.The midfielder has now scored seven goals this season and provided four assists in 29 appearances and hopes to finish the campaign impressively.I probably havent hit a shot with as much power, Aribo told Rangers TV after the game.Everyone in training says I just like to finesse and curl it but Ive been practising so I just thought I would put my laces through it and thankfully it went in.The boys are buzzing, we knew it wasnt going to be an easy game. We had to start fast and give all we could in the game to get a foothold and just keep going throughout the whole 90 minutes.I just want to finish the season strong, keep pushing, keep going and giving all that I can and I am happy that Im getting positive results.Rangers will take on Belgian side Royal Antwerp in their second leg Round of 32 clash in the Europa League on Thursday, having won the first leg 4-3Aribo has urged the Ibrox Stadium outfit to do all it takes to progress to the next stage of the European competition.Read Also:Napoli confirm Osimhen suffered head traumaIts a big game and its knockout football. We know what we have to do and we just have to focus, get ready, dust ourselves off and move on to that, Aribo added.Aribo has also been praised by Rangers manager Steven Gerrard for his versatility and commanding display against Dundee United, describing him as a boss kidFor me, good players can do whatever you ask them to do. The good thing for Joe is he can be effective as a right 10 or a left 10, of course he can because hes closer to the goal, Gerrard told Rangers TV.If you ask Joe, hell probably want to be closer to the goal. But when were at home, playing him as a left eight or a right eight it gives us that bit of ambition in the team rather than having the three number sixes and we know he can burst from deep and it gives us the chance to get Hagi and [Ryan] Kent in the team as well and maybe other people for different games as well.Honest to God, I cant speak highly enough of the kid. Hes a boss kid and he wants to improve. Were delighted to have him. He decided to come here and develop and grow and hes moving in the right direction.Hes low maintenance, everything hes putting into it, its no surprise hes getting a lot of good performances in his game now. Goal
