Now the winger has set his sights on conquering the international arena as he bids to help Nigeria qualify for the 2014 World Cup and upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.
Aluko earned his first cap for the Super Eagles three years ago when he was selected for their clash with the Republic of Ireland at Fulham's Craven Cottage, but has yet to add to his international tally.
His superb form for Ally McCoist's side has seen him given another chance to impress, however, with Stephen Keshi's men facing many crunch fixtures as they attempt to book their place at two major finals.
The former Aberdeen star was an unused substitute as the Nigerians saw off Namibia last weekend, getting their campaign off to a perfect start with a 1-0 win.
Next up is a meeting with Malawi tomorrow before the Super Eagles take on Rwanda on June 17.
After several months out of the game, Aluko's move to Ibrox has given him the chance to shine on the big stage once again and the winger hopes he can finally gain more international recognition for his adopted homeland.
Aluko said: "My mum and dad were born in Nigeria, as was my sister, and I was the first one from our family to be born in England.
"It's funny as I'm the one who has gone on to play for Nigeria while she is a women's inter- national with England.
"Nevertheless, there's a real pride in Nigeria in our whole family. That's who I supported when I was young and I grew up when there was a real golden generation.
"Our country won the Olympic tournament in 1996 and then at the 1998 World Cup we had the likes of Kanu, Jay-Jay Okocha and Daniel Amokachi all in the team.
"In fact, when I made my Nigeria debut, Kanu was there at our camp and his technique was unbelievable. He couldn't run like he used to but you couldn't get the ball off him."
He went on: "Being at Rangers has certainly helped me in my bid to win a place with my international team.
"The club has had a lot of big players in the past who have played for big countries and it's a club which has played regularly on the European stage.
"Those sorts of things always help your chances and with a lot of our games being televised, I'd hope people out there have been taking note of my form."
Meanwhile, Rangers have confirmed that they will play French Ligue 2 side Le Havre in pre-season action on July 12.
The match will open the club's new stadium, the Grand Stade du Havre, a 25,000-seater arena that has taken two years to build.
Former Gers star Jean-Alain Boumsong is a graduate of the Le Havre academy, where Ibrahim Ba, Lassana Diarra and Vikash Dhorasoo also emerged through the ranks.
Ally McCoist's side will then return to Britain for the Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup in Southampton on July 14, with the Light Blues facing Nigel Adkins' Saints and Premiership giants Arsenal.
Rangers will next head to Europe once again as they return to Germany for a training camp, as well as facing Eintracht Braunschweig on July 20, SV Rodinghausen on July 22 and Armenia Bielefeld on July 25 as McCoist fine-tunes his preparations for the new SPL season.
