Steven Davis has come into his own in the past few games, and his versatility and flexibility has allowed Steven Gerrard to try different formations. After the Old Firm derby defeat, Rangers have been impressive. The manager has also given a little trailer of what we might expect from this team in the next season. It’s true that Rangers don’t have much to play for at this point, but their two victories against Hearts and one against Motherwell showcased that they might be not that far behind Celtic next season.
Rangers have signed the Southampton midfielder on loan, and the deal is set to expire in the next few months. Therefore Gerrard needs to come to a decision soon regarding whether he wants to retain the experienced midfielder or not. Former Rangers captain and legend Barry Ferguson believe that Davis will play a pivotal role next season and Gerrard needs to sign him up for the upcoming season.
What did Ferguson say?
In the Daily Record column, Ferguson wrote, ”I cannot stress enough what an impact Steven Davis has had on the way this team is now playing and what a difference he has made to the whole style of play. Gerrard will be a busy man throughout the transfer market this summer, but he’ll struggle to do a better of business than sitting Davo down right now and getting him tied up.”
”As far as I’m concerned, the last three wins have given Gerrard his blueprint for next season and Davis and Jermain Defoe should be absolutely key to it. All of a sudden, Rangers are on the front foot, closing people down, playing with energy, flair and confidence that hasn’t always been there over the course of the season.”
If someone would have talked about signing Davis permanently two months ago, then many fans would have disagreed. The 34-year-old midfielder struggled to get going in the first few months as he was off the pace. It was understandable as Davis hadn’t played much football in the past year for the Saints. Once he prepared himself, he has been a significant influence in the middle of the park alongside Glen Kamara.
Why should Gerrard take Ferguson’s advice?
Davis has played as a box to box midfielder for the most of his career, but he might not have the legs to do that regularly at Ibrox. However, he can either sit back and play deep or play in the attacking third.
His incisive passing and running look refreshing as Rangers were often guilty of being too stagnant against sides who liked to sit back. Davis’ addition has added a different dimension to the side, and there is no doubt in our mind that Gerrard should sign him on a free transfer in the summer.
