Two Rangers’ Nigerian players nominated for Europa League Player of the Week

Rangers’ Nigeria national teamers Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey have both been nominated for the official Europa League Player of the Week by European football governing body UEFA.

Aribo and Bassey started for the Light Blues as they were beaten 5-4 on penalties in the Europa League showpiece held in Seville on Wednesday night.

The Super Eagles midfielder was deployed as a false nine against the German Bundesliga side and was in action for 101 minutes, while Bassey put in a full shift in defence.

Aribo and Bassey have been shortlisted for the Europa League Player of the Week alongside Eintracht Frankfurt duo Rafael Borré and Kevin Trapp.

The former Charlton Athletic man was the only Rangers player involved in all the seventeen matches played by the club in the 2021-2022 Europa League, including the qualifying rounds.
