To win the Young POTY accolade, Aribo saw off competition from Niko Katic, Ryan Kent, George Edmundson, and Ianis Hagi.

Signed from Charlton Athletic last summer, the Nigerian had an impressive debut season, scoring 9 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions while assisting eight others.

Three of Aribo’s strikes were in the running for the Goal of the Season, against FC Midtjylland, Hbernian FC, and Sporting Braga, but his goal against the Portuguese set up was picked as the best goal scored by a Rangers player the last term.
