'Unbelievable experience' - Rangers LB Bassey aiming to end season with European trophy

Super Eagles left-back Calvin Bassey is aiming to end the season by winning the Europa League with Glasgow Rangers.


The 22-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season in both the Scottish Premiership and Europa League, setting up three goals in 39 appearances, thirty seven of which he started, and made his Nigeria debut two months ago in a World Cup qualifier versus Ghana.


Bassey is gearing up for the biggest game of his career to date as Rangers contest the 2022 UEFA Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville on Wednesday 18 May.


Rangers senior players have advised the Nigerian not to get carried away and concentrate on the task at hand.


Speaking to STV, Bassey said : "Obviously being one of the young boys that's been playing, for me it has just been amazing, unbelievable experience and just trying to take it all in but at the same time just remember I've got a job to do.


"The boys around keep me so calm, so grounded and level-headed to make sure that we take each game as it comes and focus on the bigger picture."


Bassey is expected to report for international duty a week or so after the Europa League showpiece, with coach Salisu Yusuf naming him on the roster for the friendlies against Mexico (May 28) and Ecuador (June 2).
