Frank McAvennie has been left lauding Steven Davis as he has taken a more prominent role for Rangers than usual in the absence of Ryan Jack.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Celtic and West Ham United player now pundit has nothing but praise for the Northern Ireland international:
“Steven Davis is very experienced and he has dictated the play for them over the past couple of months. The only time he got the run around was against Celtic for an hour. Soro and Turnbull did so well.
“The return of Jack will help and he will have learned a lot sitting on the side lines and watching how the master does it because Davis is up there with the very wonderful players.
“He finds himself in pockets of space all the time and that is not by luck. I have nothing but praise for the boy Davis.”
Davis has been instrumental in Rangers title chase
The likes of James Tavernier have perhaps been stealing all of the headlines for the Gers this season given that he is currently both their top scorer and assister, but Davis has been nothing short of instrumental in Steven Gerrard’s team as they look almost certain to clinch the Scottish Premiership title off of the hands of their bitter rivals Celtic.
Should Davis start for Rangers?
Captain for his country at international level, the 36-year-old is a real leader both off of the pitch as well as on it, playing in no fewer than 27 games in all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term which has seen them go miles clear at the top of the SPFL table in addition to qualifying for the next round in the UEFA Europa League.
The central midfield player has shown the quality that he still possesses too, winning no fewer than 3.5 of his duels per game in the league as well as averaging 1.8 tackles and 1.2 interceptions per match (Sofascore).
