“I didn’t think I could just message them like that tonight,” Bassey said.
“I’ll give them a day. It just depends on how they are . I haven’t seen them for a while. Obviously I’m buzzing on one side but (on the other) I can’t explain it, it’s a weird feeling.
“When I’m not playing against the (Rangers) boys I wish them the best and I’m always rooting for them to win . But being on the pitch against them , I just had to switch that focus because now I’m here. I’ve got to give 100% and I’m just pleased to get the win .
“I wouldn’t say it was easy for us. I just think we executed what the manager wanted from us right at times . There’s still work to be done for us to get better but we’re pleased with the performance . We just need to keep working on.”
