‘I Can Bring A Lot To The Team’: Should Gerrard Consider Roping In This Veteran On Permanent Terms For Rangers?

Rangers, despite a blistering start, lost their plot midway in the title race. They are now aiming to conclude the season on a high note after securing successive wins. But, at the same time, they are setting their objectives for the upcoming summer transfer window. The Gers made an array of signings over the past two windows, and Steven Gerrard is now assessing his loan recruits whether to land them permanently beyond the ongoing term.

Despite a slow start on his return to Glasgow, Steven Davis has gradually exhibited his impact and influence on and off the pitch. The 34-year-old Irishman is set to be a free agent when his contract with Southampton expires upon the completion of the ongoing term, and the player is aiming for a permanent switch to Ibrox to ‘play a big part’ in Rangers’ resurgence.

“I feel I have got a big part to play, I feel I can bring a lot to the team. I feel we have a hungry group of players who have a real desire to start bringing trophies back to the club. There’s been a lot of good work and good progress done this season and we need to try and take that to another level next year.”

Stated the veteran (as quoted by Sky Sports) who is upbeat and optimistic about a successful future ahead. Although the club is yet to offer him a contract, Davis is relishing his return to Rangers having spent a successful stint prior to his move to St Mary’s. 

The midfielder has been handed a starting role of late and his versatility, experience and adaptability helped the Bears to dominate the midfield game and showcase superiority while snatching results.

In spite of an impressive loan stint, Davis does not have much time left in his career. He is already in his mid-thirties and Rangers must not expect anything spectacular from the Northern Ireland international even if he is retained beyond this season. He might play a squad role for the next couple of years; however, Gerrard should focus on wrapping up names who would serve the Light Blues in the long run.

Yet a short-term contract should be considered due to his commitment and sheer dedication even at the twilight of his career. Davis is a true professional who would motivate the youth to perform better and improve their game rectifying the limitations and shortcomings while challenging Celtic to the title next season.
