Former Scotland striker, Frank McAvennie, has claimed Rangers defender, Calvin Bassey, is “not good enough” for the Premier League yet.



The 22-year-old Super Eagles star had a great season with the Gers in the recently concluded campaign.

Bassey reached the final of the Europa League and won the Scottish Cup.

His exploits have seen him linked with a move to the Premier League. But McAvennie believes it’s too early.

“Can he go in and play in the Premier League right now? "Noway,” McAvennie told Football Insider.

I don’t think he is good enough for the Premier League. If [Aston Villa manager Steven] Gerrard is buying him, it’s because he has done a job in Scotland.

“England is a whole different game." He’s muscle-bound, but if he comes up against someone like Jack Grealish, he will get ripped apart.

I’m sorry to say that, Bassey, but that’s the truth. Another year with the Rangers and maybe he might be ready. At this moment in time, the brutal truth is that he’s not good enough. ”
