Joe Aribo Scores As Rangers Move Within Two Points Of Celtics

Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo notched his sixth goal of the season as Glasgow Rangers secured a comfortable 3-0 victory over Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership to cut city rivals Celtic’s lead at the top to two points.

The 23-year-old put Steven Gerrard’s side two goals up four minutes after Ryan Kent fourth minute opener at Easter Road.

In what is fast becoming a trademark, Aribo ghosted into the box with a perfectly timed run from midfield to steer home Ryan Jack’s assist for his second league goal since his summer arrival from Charlton Athletic

It was his 15th appearance in the Premiership for the Gers and he was lasted 75 minutes before his substitution.

Rangers have now notched up 14 wins in the league this season and are on a good run that has seen them win seven of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Steven Gerrard’s team occupy second place with 44 points after 17 matches and next face Kilmarnock at Ibrox Stadium on Boxing Day.
