Rangers boss Gerrard explains Aribo’s absence in Livingston draw

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed Joe Aribo was omitted from their 0-0 draw with Livingston in Sunday’s Scottish Premiership game due to injury.

The midfielder suffered a knock during one of their training sessions ahead of the game and did not recover in time to feature for the Gers at Ibrox Stadium.

Aribo has played a key role in his side’s opening three games against Aberdeen, St. Mirren and St. Johnstone, helping them clinch victories in the encounters.
