Calvin Bassey has been awarded the Rangers' 2021-2022 Men's Young Player of the Year.

On Sunday night, the Super Eagles newbie and other recipients were honored with their prizes.

After fighting his way into the starting eleven under two different managers this season, Steven Gerrard and Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Bassey has been 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.

After receiving the award, Bassey said to Rangers TV : "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 recognized.

"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."

Bassey becomes the second Nigerian to win this same award after Joe Aribo was awarded the Rangers' Young Player of the Year for the 2019-2020 campaign.

Aribo and Bassey were nominated for the club's Player of the Year and Men's Player of the Year honors, but none of them got the awards. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});
