Rangers legend urges Joe Aribo to join Crystal Palace

Newly promoted Nottingham Forest have set their sights on another Super Eagles star as they are now firmly in the race for Joe Aribo.

Rangers legend Kenny Miller has advised Joe Aribo to seek a move to Crystal Palace.

Aribo, who has a year left on his contract at Rangers has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa.

The midfielder once lived close to London during his stint with Charlton Athletic before moving to Rangers.

Miller feels that a return to the English capital ‘makes sense’, with Crystal Palace situated just ten miles south of Aribo’s former employers Charlton Athletic.

“London probably makes sense for Joe because it’s where he grew up,” Miller adds. “Joe only signed for around £300,000. If Rangers can get around £8million for him it’s good business,” Miller told Daily Record.

“That’s the model every club wants. You sign cheap – the same way Celtic did with Moussa Dembele – and sell big. Clubs need to balance the books and Rangers are no different.

“Right now, Aribo is still an asset. But if it gets to Christmas time and nothing’s happened, he’ll probably leave for nothing. Maybe now is a good time for him to go.”
