Browne was on loan at Oxford United last season and his former manager, Karl Robinson’s, comments should excite both Celtic and Rangers fans.

 

“Marcus Browne just showed everybody why he’s the best player in this league. This is the best team in the league and that shows you what they think of our No 10,” Robinson said to the Oxford Mail, after his side drew with Sunderland.

The comments are interesting as Rangers and Celtic are both battling it out to sign Joe Aribo, according to The Scottish Sun.

Aribo was in direct comparison with Browne last term, as the pair were both playing League One football.

On the face of it, the playmaker’s stats are remarkably similar. Both players made five assists, and Aribo scored 10 goals to Browne’s nine.

However, Aribo may just have the edge - as he looks slightly further down the line in his development than Browne.

If Rangers or Celtic were to sign either of the pair they wouldn’t be making a mistake.

But, despite Robinson’s comments, Aribo still should remain first pick for either of the Glasgow clubs.
