The Super Eagles star played in an unusual position, but he still churned out a brilliant performance

Rangers gaffer Giovanni Van Bronckhorst has hailed Super Eagles star Joe Aribo for his ability to switch roles comfortably in Rangers’ 3-0 Europa League victory over Partizan Belgrade.

The former Charlton man has played more of a creative role since Van Bronckhorst took over from Steven Gerrard earlier this season. Nonetheless, the Dutch tactician opted to alter his team, giving Aribo an inverted winger role.

However, Aribo was brilliant on the night, playing an important role to help the Gers to a first-leg victory over their Serbian opponents.

The 25-year-old had 50 touches, a 100 percent dribble rate, three interceptions, and two clearances.

After the game, Van Bronckhorst affirmed his belief in Aribo’s ability to fit in any midfield role.

“Kamara played a different role, Joe played a different role today, and I think he played in that role before I came, so I knew he was capable of doing that,” Van Bronckhorst told Rangers TV.

“I think the midfield was key today because we had to change sometimes our defensive shape…”

Van Bronckhorst would hope that Aribo’s performance on Thursday would be the springboard to better displays as the season draws to an end.
