Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey has dedicated Rangers’ win to the club’s legendary kitman who died three days ago at the age of 69.

Bassey held his black armband and faced the camera after the win against RB Liepzig at Ibrox. With almost teary eyes and an emotion-laden face, the 22-year old defender said “For you Jimmy.”

Bell is highly respected in Rangers and was a cultural icon for the club.

The player tweeted later and said “For Jimmy… love you”
