'Phenomenal': Some Rangers fans in awe of 21-year-old's display in Arsenal friendly
A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have lauded Calvin Bassey after his impressive display for Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox today.
Rangers signed Bassey last summer and he has made 15 competitive appearances for the Light Blues to date.
The 21-year-old has had to bide his time at Ibrox, given Borna Barisic has been so impressive at left-back.
However, Bassey duly provided Gerrard with a reminder of his class as he shone in today’s pre-season meeting with Arsenal.
He was bright and lively from the first minute, seeking to get forward at every opportunity.
Bassey also produced a stunning goalline clearance to deny Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
There were concerns when Pablo Mari hacked him down but he managed to run the knock off.
Bassey played 60 minutes in the 2-2 draw and plenty of Bears were delighted with his showing.
Here’s what some Rangers were saying on Twitter during and after the game:
