Glasgow Rangers moved 19 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership after their 1-0 victory in the Old Firm on Saturday, and Steven Davis played a big role in that victory.
The Gers were actually second-best early on, with Celtic taking the game to the 54-time Scottish champions – Allan McGregor was forced to make several top saves to keep the score level. However, things changed when Nir Bitton was sent off for a foul on Alfredo Morelos in the second-half, and soon after Callum McGregor put the ball into his own net to give Rangers the three points.
In the middle of the park, Davis was impressive. He made five interceptions, won 7 of his 11 duels and also made three tackles, getting stuck in at every opportunity. Even at the age of 36, he remains an important player for Steven Gerrard and co.
