Ribeiro leaves Iron

Defender Christian Ribeiro has confirmed he will be leaving the club this summer following talks with Iron boss Russ Wilcox today.

The likeable Welshman had impressed fans in spells this term and but ultimately failed to impress Brian Laws and more importantly Russ Wilcox in the Iron hot seat.

Ribeiro tweeted: “It’s nice to bow out with a promotion, thank you Scunthorpe for the last 2 years.

“There have been highs and lows but a great journey!”

He was wrongly accused by former boss Brian Laws of making the most of a groin injury in the 0-0 draw with Northampton earlier in the season and had found chances few and far between since then.
