Following his outstanding performance so far for the 2021/22 season, Glasgow Rangers’ midfielder, Joe Aribo, has been deemed the third-best player of the Scottish Premiership.

The Super Eagles player has enjoyed a strong start to the season in which he’s scored twice to help the Gers stay top of the league table.

According to Football Scotland citing PLZ Soccer, the Nigeria international was the only Rangers player listed among the top 10 players so far in the league.

So far this season, Aribo has started every game contested by Steven Gerrard’s side in the Scottish top-flight, 11 in total, and was in action for 918 minutes.

Meanwhile, Celtic’s Callum McGregor has been selected as the best player of the Premiership season so far.

In the list published by PLZ Soccer, the Celtic skipper came out on top.

McGregor, who took over the armband from Scott Brown over the summer, has missed just two of the 11 rounds of top-flight fixtures so far.

In the second spot is the midfielder’s team-mate – Kyogo Furuhashi. The Japanese attacker has been a sensation since checking in at Parkhead over the summer, scoring five goals in eight top-flight appearances.

Dundee United defensive lynchpin Charlie Mulgrew occupies the fourth position.

He’s been a huge part of new boss Tam Courts’ rebuild at Tannadice – helping them to just three points off the top of the league in third with six clean sheets and a goal to his name.

Joint-Premiership top scorer Martin Boyle is fifth – having netted seven times for Hibs thus far.

Craig Gordon, Benfica loanee Jota, Beni Baningime Tony Watt, and Jeando Fuchs complete the top ten.
