Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo scored his first international goal for Nigeria last night.

Aribo scored the Super Eagles' opener in a 2-2 draw with Ukraine.

 

Aribo's goal did not go unnoticed at Ibrox.

This is just a small gesture from Beale, yet its so important for Aribo to see that Rangers care about a huge moment in his career.

Aribo's goal was timed perfectly, giving him a lift exactly when he needed it.

The youngster's first month at Rangers went perfectly. Yet over the last couple of weeks it has got more difficult for the former Charlton Athletic youngster.

He will have to overcome his dip in form, and last night's goal suggests that he may already have bounced back.

Certainly he will return to Rangers full of confidence.
