Following his move from Rangers to the Premier League, Southampton new recruit – Joe Aribo, has sent a heartfelt farewell message to the supporters and players of the Scottish side.

Aribo appreciated Rangers Football Club and their fans on social media for all of their support and encouragement throughout his time in Glasgow just a few hours before his move to Southampton was made official.

He wrote on Twitter saying;

It has been an amazing journey being part of this special club, I hold Rangers very close to my heart as they gave me the opportunity to showcase my talent on a bigger stage. Playing at Ibrox was a dream and I am glad I got to experience it.

“I’m happy I was able to play a part in the historic 55 league title winning season. I’d like to thank everyone associated with this great club for all you’ve done for me during my time here, you’ve always made me feel welcome and I’ve always had your full support.

“I’ve developed into an even better player, credit to the supporters who always had my back and stayed patient during the tough times. We created a lot of memories together, memories that I will carry with me throughout the rest of my career.

“I wish the club nothing but the best for the future and I’ll always be checking in. Joe Aribo.”

Aribo played a key role in his three seasons at Ibrox after moving there from Charlton in 2019, helping Rangers win the Scottish Premiership in 2021 and losing in the Europa League final.

After the season was over, Aribo said he was appreciative of the chance to play 70 games for the Scottish team and thanked God for guiding him through it.

Despite having experienced both highs and lows during his final season with the Rangers, he said that it had also left him with priceless memories.

The midfielder, who thanked Rangers fans for their support, expressed his excitement about starting his career with the Saints’ next season as their fifth summer signing
