‘I’d Be Worried’ — Rangers Legend Ferguson Concerned Premier League Side Will Want Aribo

Rangers legend Barry Ferguson is worried Joe Aribo will dump the Gers for a Premier League club soon, reports

The Nigeria international has been in fine form for the Scottish Premiership champions this season.

The 25-year-old has scored five goals and recorded three assists in 16 league appearances for the club.

Aribo produced another superb display in Rangers’ 3-0 win against Dundee at the weekend, scoring one goal and assisting another.

The former Rangers captain believes he has everything managers would want in a modern midfielder and his goals have made him an even more valuable commodity.

Ferguson said on the Go Radio Football Show: “I thought he was really good for Rangers last year and I think he has gone up levels this season.

“He has been Rangers’ best player by a country mile, there is no doubt about it.

“Looking at Rangers and the Rangers support go on about Morelos, Kent and so on, and rightly so as they are big players for Rangers but for me, Joe Aribo is the outstanding player for Rangers.

“And I’d be worried that a club down in the English Premier League are going to be looking at Joe Aribo.

“He has got everything for a central midfielder.

“He has got pace, power, he can handle the ball and the most important thing is that he has added goals to his game and that would put a few 0s to his transfer fee.”

Aribo still has more than 18 months left on his current contract with Rangers and it remains to be seen if Steven Gerrard’s exit will affect his thinking.
