Joe Aribo has today confirmed he has no intention of leaving Rangers, in what is set to be a colossal boost for Rangers fans off the back of three confirmed extensions, and one signing.
Scott Arfield, Steven Davis and Connor Goldson have all committed their futures to the club, while new signing John Souttar has finally arrived at Ibrox to begin life as a Ger, but Aribo, 25, is one of those players approaching the last year of his deal and one the club wants to retain.
While there’s no word yet on a new deal, his comments come as clear commitment to the Rangers, with zero overtures about leaving.
If ever a statement was unequivocal, this was it. His team mates historically, like Alfredo Morelos and indeed Connor Goldson, were at best vague about their future, or at worst plugging themselves for the move out, but Aribo is having none of it and is happy to stay.
This appears to be a clear signal to Rangers’ board of commitment and loyalty on the part of the big Nigerian, so the way to repay that is to give him a big contract extension and permanently quell any notion of a move away.
That would be a contract all Rangers fans would be delighted with.
