Stopper Gers Bassey said: “You always want to test yourself against the best. He is without a doubt one of the best strikers in the world.

“You want to see how you deal with a player like that. We have a game on Sunday and right now we are focused on getting back in shape in the league and getting three points.

“For us, every game is a big game. I know it’s a cliché, but it’s true because playing for a team like the Rangers, you can’t accept anything less than three points.

“It was a great night and a great feeling, we did great as a team, we enjoyed it.”

Bassey showed his best game in a Rangers jersey when he partnered with Connor Goldson on defense.

He said, “I just want to play. I want to participate in every game, wherever I play.

“A centre-back needs more communication and it sort of starts with you having the ball.

“If you can beat the first press, it’s your responsibility to set the tone for the team in terms of beating the press and being brave.

“If me and Connor Goldson are brave, it extends to the whole team and everyone wants to play.


“The left back is more demanding physically, you can attack and defend.

“You will always make mistakes, but that’s how you deal with them.”
