Aribo Set For Rangers Competitive Game Return After Injury Layoff

Joe Aribo could return to competitive match for Glasgow Rangers in Sunday’s Scottish Premier League home clash against Hamilton Academical at the Ibrox Stadium after spending time on the sidelines due to head injury.

The Nigeria midfielder has missed Rangers’ last two games in all competitions after he was substituted in the Gers’ 1-0 Cup win against Livingston where he suffered a brutal knock on his head.

Aribo required 20 stitches to his head after being injured by Livingston’s Ricki Lamie and was bleeding heavily before he was taken off.

The 22-year-old however returned to training on Wednesday wearing a skull cap to protect the injury.

“Joe (Aribo) has a small outside chance of being involved at the weekend, but we will make that decision tomorrow,” Rangers manager Steven Gerrard told a press conference on Friday afternoon. Aribo has made six league appearances for Rangers this season following his summer arrival from Charlton Athletic.

He is in Nigeria’s squad for the upcoming international friendly encounter against five-time World champions Brazil on October 13 at National Stadium Singapore.
