Club career

In January 2015, Ribaj made his return to Apolonia Fier after one-and-a-half season by signed a six-month contract. He debuted for the first time after his return in the last day of the same month, starting and playing full-90 minutes in a 2–0 lose against Partizani Tirana.

On 3 August 2015, Ribaj moved for the first time aboard as he signed a three-year deal with Liga Leumit side Maccabi Kiryat Gat. He made his debut for the club on 21 August in the opening league match against Maccabi Ahi Nazareth, and scored his first goal three weeks later during the 1–2 home defeat to Hapoël Rishon LeZion. That was his only strike of the season, as he appeared in 29 league matches, in addition one cup match.

In September 2016, he was bought on trial by fellow Albanian Superliga club Partizani Tirana, playing a friendly match for reserve team against Dinamo Tirana. However, he was not offered a contract by the technical staff after failing impressing, and eventually ended up by penning a one-year contract with other top flight club Teuta Durrës.

Ribaj made his official debut on 12 October against his former side Skënderbeu Korçë, failing to score as Teuta slumped into a 1–0 away defeat. He scored his maiden Teuta goal later on 30 November in the matchday 13 against Flamurtari Vlorë, netting his team's only goal in an eventual 1–2 home defeat. Then, he scored a brace in the 0–2 away win at Laçi to give Teuta three important points against the survival relegations rivals. Ribaj finished the season with 4 goals in 26 league appearances, collecting 1300 on the field as Teuta secured another season in the Albanian Superliga. He left the team after the end of the season.

In September 2017, Ribaj was close to a move to Kastrioti Krujë of Albanian First Division, but eventually joined Vllaznia Shkodër in top flight on a one-year contract.
