Rangers defender Calvin Bassey has congratulated ex-Motherwell defender Cedric Kipre after he completed a move to Premier League side West Brom.

The former Steel Man joined the Baggies from Wigan in a deal believed to be worth around £1million. And Bassey - who played with Kipre during his time in the Leicester City academy outfit - was quick to applaud his pal for making the move to England's top flight.

Glasgow Times:

Sharing the announcement from West Brom on his social media pages, Bassey wrote: "All the best mon gar", with two love heart emojis. Kipre, 23, spent two years with Bassey at the Foxes before he went on to leave for Motherwell in 2017.

Kipre became the million-pound man for Motherwell when he departed for Wigan Athletic in 2018 after signing at Fir Park on a free transfer. After the Latics plunged into administration he has become the latest star - on a list including ex-Celtic goalkeeper David Marshall - to leave.

West Brom, meanwhile, had hoped to sign Shane Duffy who chose to join Celtic. And they had also recently been linked with a swoop for Kris Ajer before snapping up Kipre.
