Aribo was left out of the squad on Thursday night as Rangers were forced to a 2-2 draw against Benfica at the Ibrox.
In his post-match reaction Steven Gerrard confirmed that the Nigerian midfielder sat out the match due to stomach complaints.

“It’s important to say it is not Covid-related. He was negative on his test before people start putting two and two together.”
