Calvin Bassey has 'a bit to go' to rival Rangers' Borna Barisic says BBC pundit
Calvin Bassey conceded St Mirren’s penalty to draw the Buddies level with Rangers in the Betfred Cup quarter final with a clumsy challenge on winger Dylan Connolly.
And BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson said the stand-in defender had ‘a bit to go’ to take over the left-back mantle full-time, based on the showing in Paisley.
Discussing the foul that gave Jamie McGrath the chance to beat Allan McGregor and level from the spot five minutes before half-time, the former Rangers midfielder said: "It was slack play from Bassey in the left-back area and he just gets caught on the wrong side by Connolly on the blind side.
"Prior to that he’d been slack with a couple of balls and he’s not been quite at it. When you look at Barisic he’s top quality so I think he has a bit to go, the young man, to get up to those levels.”
