Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was lost for words trying to describe Joe Aribo as he admitted his left-back guest slot was the best of his reign.
The champions maintained their unbeaten record with a 3-0 win over Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
Goals from James Tavernier, Ryan Kent and Ianis Hagi put Rangers on the brink of a 100-point invincible season.
But it was the performance of Aribo, playing in an unfamiliar left-back role thanks to Borna Barisic’s absence, who really impressed his manager.
Gerrard told Rangers TV: “What can I say about Joe Aribo?
“I’ll tell you what I’ll say about him: good players can play football, top players can play anywhere.
“A manager can ask a player to do a role and good players can do some and good players can’t do some – but Joe Aribo is a top player.
“Whatever I ask him to do he goes out and gives it his best shot.
“He’s my man of the match tonight just because, if you think about it, he’s a number 10.
“And he’s just been so comfortable at left-back, cruised it and breezed it.
“That left-back performance is as good as we’ve seen in my three years of being here.
“So well done to him for parking his ego and doing a job for his team-mates.”
Rangers need just a point to crack the 100 barrier, but their manager wants the intensity kept right up until the end of the season.
Gerrard explained: “I don’t think the club’s ever got over 100 points, 98 is the best I’m told.
“So that’s a real incentive for us to go and finish strong and take maximum points.
“If we can’t do that we’ll try and get 100 but I want 102 and I want another performance that matches tonight because if we do (get that) it will be good enough.”
