Calvin Bassey Makes Europa League Team Of The Season


Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey tops the list of three Rangers stars who have been included in the Europa League team of the season.

Bassey, James Tavernier and Ryan Kent were selected for inclusion by UEFA’s Technical Observer panel.

Bassey earned rave reviews for his colossal performance in the Europa League final against Frankfurt on Wednesday.

While the Nigerian defender was cruelly on the losing side after the shoot-out he was lavished with praise by pundits over his impressive display at centre-back.

Bassey has grown into a key player for Giovanni van Bronckhorst, not only in his natural left-full-back role but also in the centre of defence.

Ibrox captain Tavernier was an obvious candidate for the end-of-competition award after being top-goalscorer from full-back in an incredible European campaign.

The Rangers defender – included in midfield in the Europa League dream team – netted seven goals and provided two assists in the run to the final.

Rangers’ final representative in the team of the season is winger Kent.

The electric forward appeared to save his best performances for the European stage this season and played a major role in the run to the final.

He played 13 times in the competition proper, scoring once and offering five assists.
