In an extremely cold winter Wednesday night in Dingwall, Ryan Jack once more showed why he is a key man for Glasgow Rangers.
The Gers enforcer was magnificent in the commanding win and did everything you would expect a top rated midfield player to.
Jack was everywhere he should have been to stop attacks from the home side, and to create havoc going forward for Rangers.
He hit two great 20 yard strikes into the right-hand corners of the net to give the keeper no chance with either goal and curled one just past the left-hand-post soon after. What a hat-trick that would have been.
Some Rangers fans were starting to wonder when they would see the best of 23-year-old Joe Aribo, after so much hype regarding the signing of the ex-Charlton star.
Steven Gerrard was ecstatic at signing the versatile talent in the summer – the Rangers man had many admirers to choose from, but luckily for the Glasgwegians, he signed on the dotted line for the Ibrox club.
His performance in midweek showed improvement to a few average displays from earlier in the campaign.
Aribo is still settling into a new lifestyle in Glasgow with a new team and a different style of play to contend with.
Lee Bowyer, his ex-manager at Charlton, thinks Aribo will become a true quality English Premier player, and attract a sizeable transfer fee if he continues to improve at the rate he has.
The Rangers summer signing certainly has an eye for scoring goals and making assists for his team, excellent composure, phenomenal close ball control, strength, and clever use of the ball in tight situations.
Does Gerrard know Aribo’s best position yet? At Charlton he was a box to box midfield player, that got himself up the park quickly and was always very dangerous in any quick attacking moves.
Perhaps a bit more guidance from the Rangers boss will have Aribo as a key man in the second half of the campaign.
However, given the talent of riches that the Gers have to choose from in midfield, the Nigeria international will need to be at his best to win a regular first-team slot.
