Bassey Happy To Score First Professional Goal For Rangers

Calvin Bassey is happy to score his first professional goal in Rangers’ 4-0 League Cup win at Falkirk.

Steven Gerrard’s men put up a fine performance to secure a place in the quarter-final of the competition.

He told RangersTV: “It is a good feeling and I just give thanks for the opportunity to be able to play for this amazing club.

“I just need to keep my head down and keep on working. There are things I could have done better – I’m obviously happy for my goal but I am just trying to improve as a player every single day.”

Bassey started the match tonight alongside Connor Goldson at centre-half – a bit of a change from the left-back berth Gers fans have been accustomed to seeing him at.

Bassey praised Goldson for how he guided him through the game, continuing: “Connor is a great player and an experienced player. I am just trying to listen to him and learn from him.

“It was a bit different today from my original position, but I can play centre-half and the gaffer trusted me to play it, and thankfully he did, and hopefully I did him proud.

“Where we are this season, we are just focused on each game and taking every game as it comes.

“The manager does his job to motivate us and get us ready for the games – at the end of the day, it is down to us to deliver on the pitch, and we took this game on professionally today and tried to do everything we can and do simple things right.

“You see that from the scoreline – we obviously still can do better but we are happy with the win.”

  • I have always said that this lad looks like a good fit as a left footed CB. I think we should go for him now that the hype around him isnt too much. We cap him then send him to the junior cadre for more experience.
    The up side I see to him being capped by Nigeria is that English coaches usually prefer players in the premiership so they might not value him yet. But it mostly depends on him.
