Italy-born Nigerian defender Calvin Bassey who plays for Rangers, has been included in the Scottish Professional Football League  (SPFL) Team of the Week, Completesports.com reports.

The Team of the Week was unveiled on the SPFL’s official website on Tuesday.

He was the standout performer for the league champions against Dunfermline, after losing their last three games going into the weekend encounter.

The 21-year-old, who was the only Rangers player selected, was placed on the left of a four-man midfield in the Team of the Week which is in a 3-4-3 formation.

And commenting on Bassey’s performance, SPFL wrote:”Rangers ended a three-game losing run with a devastating first-half performance against Dunfermline Athletic in the cup at Ibrox. The hosts were 4-0 up before the break en route to a 5-0 triumph. Bassey was the undoubted star man as his charging runs caused the visitors all sorts of problems.”

Bassey was part of Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side that won the league last season.

He is eligible to play for Italy, Nigeria or England at international level.
