Super Eagles and Rangers defender Calvin Bassey has been named Rangers’ 2021/2022 Men’s Young Player of the Year, reports. 

Bassey along with some other winners were awarded their prizes on Sunday night.

The Nigerian left-back had to fight his way into the starting eleven under two different managers this season, Steven Gerrard and Giovanni van Bronckhorst and has demonstrated why he remains a standout player for the Light Blues.

This season, the 22-year-old has played in 44 games across all competitions, helping Rangers reach the Europa League semifinals and the Scottish FA Cup final.

Speaking with Rangers TV after earning the award, Bassey said: “It’s an amazing feeling especially on the club’s 150th anniversary. It’s just amazing to win this award and all the hard work I’ve put in over the past year recognised.

“It has been amazing, all credit to the team, fans and manager for trusting and believing in me. My teammates push me every single day, so it’s not just for me, but for everyone there working hard with me.

“This is the part of the season where the rewards are given. You know we are still in the league, Scottish Cup and Europa League so there’s a lot to play for and we’re just focused on taking each stage as it comes, to get better and be prepared for the challenges ahead.”
