Super Eagles star Joe Aribo has admitted his decision to leave Rangers this summer for Southampton “hasn’t actually sunk in yet” after he completed a dream move to the English Premier League.

Speaking in depth on his decision to leave Rangers, the 25-year-old admitted it was his childhood aspiration to play in the English top flight during a heartfelt look back at his time in Govan.

Southampton completed the signing of Joe Aribo from Rangers on a four-year deal.

“I don’t think words can actually describe how I felt out there. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know how to celebrate. I lost like everything.

 “I literally didn’t know what to do. I remember I saw my family who were right there. And even in that, just seeing them celebrating was an amazing feeling.

 “Rangers are a real family. It holds a big place in my heart. The fans are amazing as are my team-mates and the staff.

“Leaving hasn’t actually sunk in yet. And that’s the thing with me. I don’t really let moments get to me too much.

“I do need to sit down and let this one sink in as it’s literally a dream come true (to move to the English Premier League). From a child, I wanted this.”
