Rangers produced the shock result of the Europa League playoffs when they beat Dortmund over two legs progress to the last 16 of the competition.


A big 4-2 win at Dortmund set them up for the tie and a 2-2 draw at home saw them progress to the next round from a tie where no one gave them any hope of beating the Bundesliga giants.



Bassey impressed over the two legs and provided the cross for James Tavernier’s second goal on Thursday night.


Foster stressed that the 22-year-old has upstaged Borna Barisic in the Rangers squad at left-back and deserves immense credit for the way he bided his time to grab his chance with the Glasgow giants.



The former Rangers star said on BBC Radio Scotland: “Someone like Bassey deserves huge credit.


“He came to the club, young boy, spent a lot of time on the sidelines watching Barisic, who was excellent.



“But he has come in this season, he has been far better than Barisic at left-back and he has done well when he played at centre-back.


“There he came in and played in the left of a back five and showed the power and pace he got but also the quality and delivery.”


Bassey has featured 32 times for Rangers this season and has become more or a less constant in the starting eleven.
