Glasgow Rangers manager Gio van Bronckhorst remains“positive” about clinging on to Joe Aribo despite the key Ibrox man approaching the final 18 months of his contract.
Sportsdayonline.com reports that the Playmaker, Aribo has been the stand-out Gers player of the year candidate so far after taking his game to a new level.
His sublime touch-and-finish clinched victory against Hearts on Sunday as the Nigeria international made it four goals in his last eight games.
Aribo’s performances and the limited time remaining on his deal will not have gone unnoticed by suitors down south who will be alert to the possibility of bagging a couple of cut-price bargain.
But Van Bronckhorst knows the best way for Gers to protect their investments will be to tie the influential Nigerian down on fresh terms and he’s hopeful new agreements can be struck soon.
