Joe Aribo was thrilled to get on the scoresheet as the Rangers beat Dundee United 4-1 at Ibrox in their Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon.
The midfielder continued his recent fine form with a superb second-half strike to help Steven Gerrard’s side to another three points in the Scottish Premiership.
Gers were 2-0 up at the break thanks to Ianis Hagi and Ryan Kent goals, before Aribo and Alfredo Morelos increased the advantage in the second half.
“The boys are buzzing, we knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game,” Aribo told Rangers TV at full-time.
“We had to start fast and give all we could in the game to get a foothold and just keep going throughout the whole 90 minutes.”
Aribo admitted he had been practicing his shooting technique and was thrilled to see his effort hit the back of the net.
He continued: “Everyone in training says I just like to finesse and curl it but I’ve been practicing so I just thought I would put my laces through it and thankfully it went in.
“I just want to finish the season strong, keep pushing, keep going and giving all that I can and I am happy that I’m getting positive results.”
The games continue to come thick and fast for Gers as attention now turns to Thursday night’s second-leg tie against Royal Antwerp.
Aribo added: “It’s a big game and it’s knockout football. We know what we have to do and we just have to focus, get ready, dust ourselves off and move on to that.”
