My fault for not cleaning the rib as well a I could have but need to know how to repair, next couple ribs are pulled towards the wing tip.

with out seeing what condition the wing is in it's hard to describe a repair but what I would do is go to the last good straight rib and brush glue down through the fabric over the rib.  Once dry iron using pressure to lock the fabric to that rib.  Then cut off the section that pulled, reinforce the ribs that bent, and apply a new piece of fabric over that section of the wing.  Make 1" fabric overlaps and you'll be ok.  Most of the seams will hide under finishing tapes.
