Aribo: Super Eagles star reacts after winning two Rangers end-of-season awards
The Nigeria international was one of the standout players for the Gers as they finished second in the Scottish top-flight last season

Joe Aribo has expressed his delight after winning the Rangers Young Player of the Year and Goal of the Season awards.

The young midfielder delivered impressive performances during his debut campaign with the Ibrox Stadium outfit.

Aribo teamed up with the Gers last summer after turning down a contract extension with Charlton Athletic, where he spent four years.

The 24-year-old played a key role as Steven Gerrard's men finished as runner-up in the 2019-20 Scottish Premiership season, which was abruptly concluded due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

The Nigeria international scored eight goals and provided eight assists in 45 appearances across all competitions, amid other dazzling displays.

His four goals in the Europa League propelled the Ibrox Stadium outfit to the Round of 16 of the tournament, where they face Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

Following his performances, the midfielder was named the club's young best player of the season and his wonder goal against Sporting Braga was adjudged the best in the campaign.

Aribo has taken to social media to share his feelings after scooping the two prizes in recognition of his efforts last season.

"Thanks to God [for winning the] Young Player of the Season and Goal of the Season awards," Aribo posted on Instagram.
