Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has been blown away by the work rate of Ianis Hagi and Steven Davis on the training ground.
Aribo has been in fantastic form of late and he has opened up about how he has been motivated to work hard and improve his game.
The midfielder named his two teammates as some of the hardest workers in the squad when it comes to training and shared how important every bit of work is while trying to achieve success.
“We know how physical Scottish football is so I knew that if I was getting stronger then I would be able to match that physicality. That is what I had to do,” Aribo told The Scottish Sun.
“I do most of my gym work with Glen Kamara and Connor Goldson, but when you see Ianis Hagi’s work rate, Davo’s [Steven Davis] work rate.
“You see how much gym they do and that motivates you and you know that every single day you can improve. The one per cents are so important.”
Aribo assisted Hagi’s goal against Dundee United at the weekend as the Nigerian looks to have regained his best form.
He was instrumental in the win against the Tangerines and that came just days after scoring in the Europa League against Royal Antwerp.
Aribo has often been accused of being lazy when things aren’t going his was but the work-rate we have seen from him in recent weeks has certainly brought the best out of the midfielder.
He’s unplayable on his day, as we saw against Dundee United, and if Hagi and Davis have played a role in this improvement then this can only be good news for the club.
You expect Davis to lead by example but it is great to know that Hagi is also working very hard in training as he too has shown a recent improvement.
Gers fans will be hoping Aribo continues to impress as he looks set to be handed another start against Antwerp on Thursday night.
