Ibrox legend Barry Ferguson recently expressed his concern about key players coming into the final 12 months of their deals potentially leaving and talking of selling this summer.

Aribo suggested he'd be open to a contract extension as he expressed his happiness at being at Rangers.

"I don’t know (of any interest),” he said. "I never knew about anything to be honest, I just focused on football.

"I’m happy at Rangers, I’ve been happy since I got here and I’ve loved every single minute of it.

"So I’ve just been focused on here and I just want to stay focused because at the end of the day, I’m a Rangers player and I’m not thinking about leaving because I’m really happy here."

Aribo, at points last season, was Rangers' best player before encountering a dip in standards. However, he demonstrated his versatility and how important he is to the team, being able to fill in different roles to a high standard, by taking on the central attacking position in the final weeks of the season.

The 25-year-old scored in the Europa League final and helped the club win the Scottish Cup.
