The Super Eagles Number 10 played every single minute of the encounter and provided an assist as Rangers hammer Hearts 5-0 on Sunday afternoon at the Ibrox Stadium in the Scottish Premier League.
Nigeria international Joe Aribo made his 12th league appearance for Steven Gerrard’s side and laid on the assist for Ryan Kent’s goal as Rangers flexed their attacking muscles against a struggling rival.
The 23-year-old Nigerian harried and hassled the opposition all day and picked up a yellow card for his troubles on the stroke of halftime.
Two Greg Stewart goals and further strikes from Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Kent and a Berra own goal helped the Gers power past the challenge of the visitors and move the home side back on leveled terms at the top of the league with Celtic. The champions had earlier flogged Ross County 4-1 at the Global Energy Stadium.
Two first half goals – one from Morelos and another from Kent, supplied by Aribo – set the tone for the afternoon before an unfortunate Berra own goal – diverting a Tavernier cross into his own net – extended the home side’s advantage after the restart.
Substitute Stewart then grabbed two goals in the last ten minutes of the game to conclude a comfortable display for the Ibrox giants.
With the huge Rangers victory, just one goal now splits the Glasgow giants at the top of the Premiership table with the title race increasing looking like going all the way, with the rest of the chasing pack a long way behind.
