Aribo’s Head Broken

New Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo sustained a head injury in Rangers ‘ 1-0 win over Livingston in Wednesday’s Scottish League Cup fixture.

The former Charlton Athletic midfielder returned to the starting eleven of Rangers, but his night was over after 23rd minutes after Livingston’s Ricki Lamie caught him with an elbow which left him bleeding heavily.

Aribo was replaced by Steven Davis, as he was unable to continue, although the severity of the injury is yet to be confirmed.

The injury could come as a big blow to Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, who’s banking on the player for October 13’s friendly game with Samba boys of Brazil in Singapore.
