Rangers: Steven Davis transfer decision looms

Rangers: Steven Davis transfer decision looms -Rangers News

Rangers midfielder Steven Davis could be about to call time on his Ibrox career. 

The lowdown

According to Transfermarkt, the 37-year-old’s £13,000-per-week contract is due to expire one week from today.

The Northern Irishman said after the 2-0 Scottish Cup final victory over Hearts on Saturday that he doesn’t know whether he would still be a Rangers player next season, while The Scottish Daily Mail have since reported (via Ibrox News) that fellow Premiership side Motherwell are lining up a move for the £900,000-rated veteran.

Davis first joined Rangers from Fulham back in 2008 following a successful loan spell. Four years later, he left for Southampton, before returning to Ibrox in 2019.

Across those two spells in Glasgow, he has played 344 matches, scoring 25 goals, providing 70 assists and winning eight trophies, including four league titles.

The latest

Glasgow World journalist Lewis Anderson has indicated that the coming days could be crucial in determining Davis’ next move.

His understanding is that the veteran midfielder will ‘hold talks with Rangers officials this week over his future’ at Ibrox.

The verdict

How strong is the case to keep Davis around?

He has played 33 games over the course of the season, but he wasn’t a regular starter by any means.

Indeed, Davis didn’t feature at all in the Europa League knockout rounds until the final, when he played 46 minutes, and he only started 13 times in the Premiership.

However, when he has featured, the club’s 2020/21 Player of the Year has shown he can still produce the goods. Rangers partners Heart & Hand said that he was ‘running the show‘ in the victory over Dundee United earlier this month, while radio presenter Bill Young dubbed him ‘majestic as always‘ for his performance that day.

Perhaps Giovanni van Bronckhorst will decide that it makes little sense to let a dependable player leave and potentially embark on a search for an external replacement, which may consume time and resources, when there is a reliable operator in Davis to call upon.
