PremiershipJoe Aribo and Calvin Bassey inspired the Rangers to expand their undefeated Premiership streak to 17 games after beating Dundee United 1-0 on Saturday. The Super Eagles midfielder failed to expand his record of six assists and two assists in 19 league games this season, but his presence strengthened her dominance in midfield. Bassey was also a strong force in the Gers defense as the injured Leon Balogun was absent as he helped them maintain their fifth straight conceded goal in the league. The versatile defender has played 13 Premiership games for the Ibrox Stadium team this season. While the Nigerian duo had a few minutes of play, Zambia's striker Fashion Sakala was substituted on for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's team. Saturday's win at Ibrox Stadium was in retaliation for Dundee United, who saw the Rangers their first and only league loss of the season this season since August 7. The Gers lead the table with 48 points after 19 games, seven points ahead of second-placed Celtic. Bassey received his first invitation to the Super Eagles in September and was an unused substitute in their World Cup qualifiers against the Central African Republic in October. The 21-year-old is fighting with Aribo for a place in the Nigerian squad for the Africa Cup in Cameroon in 2021. However, Rangers boss Van Bronckhorst is not ready to release his key players ahead of the Old Firm derby against Celtic in January 2. It was clear to me that we would release them if necessary after the Old Firm game, ”said the Dutch coach.
