Frustrated Rangers midfielder Aribo turns his attention to Porto

The 23-year-old midfielder is hoping his side will bounce back from their recent underwhelming showings when they take on the Portuguese club

Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has set his sight on helping the Gers triumph over Porto when they meet in Thursday’s Europa League game.

Steven Gerrard’s men have only won one game in three outings and threw away their chance to leapfrog Celtic to the Premiership top position last weekend after playing out a 1-1 draw against Hearts.

Nigeria international Aribo revealed his displeasure at the Gers’ failure to secure all three points in the encounter but he is hopeful they will bounce back to winning ways when they travel to Portugal to face Sergio Conceicao’s men.

“We’re frustrated, we wanted to go out there and get the points but unfortunately we weren’t able to do that,” Aribo told Rangers TV.

“After a result like this, we just want to bounce back and give it our all to try and come home with a result.

“I would say European football is more structured and it’s a bit different from what we have domestically.”

Aribo only returned to Rangers’ squad last weekend against Hearts, having missed his side’s last three games due to a head injury.

“I am just thankful to God that I am able to be playing again and I just want to keep performing and keep playing as well as I can.”

Aribo has made 17 appearances, scoring four goals since his summer switch from Charlton Athletic.
