Calvin Bassey gets his chance at Rangers
Bassey had a breakthrough season this term at Rangers after joining the incumbent Scottish champions in the summer of 2020 on a free transfer from Leicester City U23s’.
The Super Eagles defender has played a total of 44 games across all competitions for Rangers this season, mostly operating at centre-back despite being a natural left-back.
Bassey has quickly established himself as an important part of the Giovanni van Bronckhorst-led side, having started 40 of the 44 games he has played this season.
The 22-year-old has also chipped in with five (5) assists for the Gers this season as a testament to his attacking qualities from a defensive position.
