Calvin Bassey has said his target is to continue doing well for Scottish champions Rangers in order to get called up to the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Bassey has been a revelation for Rangers this season after enjoying more playing time.

The 21-year-old has played 17 games in all competitions and provided three assists.

His impressive performance earned him an invitation in October’s double header between the Eagles and Central African Republic but did not feature.

And he believes if he continues to perform he will surely get another call up.

“If I do well here, that helps me get called up for Nigeria so I am fully focused on working hard here at the club,” he said in Friday’s press conference ahead of this weekend’s league clash with Dundee United.

“When you get a run of games it has allowed my performances to get stronger. You gain confidence playing games and getting match sharpness back.

“Hopefully, I can keep it going and I’ll give it my best.“

Following injury to compatriot Leon Balogun, Bassey has been drafted into central defence.

And he believes playing another position will only improve him.

He said:I’ll play anywhere, anywhere the manager wants me to play. Playing different positions only benefits me and helps me to get better. I just have my head down and giving it my best.

“It’s a different angle playing at centre-back but I have experienced players around me with Greegsy, Tav, Connor and Borna so they have all helped me to improve and get better in that position.

“I just want to play and be on the pitch, I’ll be honest! Same as all the boys, I’m at my happiest on the pitch at Ibrox.

“The more experience I get in this position, I’ll keep gaining confidence and hopefully get better with every match.“
