Aribo and Bassey signed off the 2021-2022 season in style by helping Rangers win the Scottish Cup on Saturday, May 21.
And before the cup final, they gave a good account of themselves despite the Light Blues' loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League showpiece last week.
Their target now is to help the Super Eagles return to winning ways after suffering disappointment in the 2022 World Cup playoff versus Ghana.
Aribo is one of the first names on the Super Eagles team sheet, having started all the seventeen matches he has played for the Super Eagles, while Bassey is competing with Porto's Zaidu Sanusi for a starting spot in the internationals this summer.
