Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left unhappy on social media over some news which has emerged on Steven Davis.
As per the official Twitter page of the Northern Ireland national side, the central midfield player has now been called up for his country to play in their FIFA World Cup qualifying games against Switzerland and Bulgaria.
Should Davis start for Rangers?
At 36 years of age, it is always a honour for Davis to still be representing his country, but several Light Blues have expressed their concern that he might burn out when he returns to the club after the international break has finished.
He has played in 11 matches in total over all competitions for Steven Gerrard’s side so far this season, scoring one goal (Transfermarkt), and there may be a question mark over his fitness given his age.
Rangers fans on Davis news
These Gers supporters erupted as the news of Davis’ call-up was shared by the club on Twitter:
“Not exactly what we need though is it?”
“Wish he would retire from international football”
“Be much better if he wasn’t as the rest would be good during these breaks for him”
“So proud of the best CM in Scotland but at what point does he say he needs to focus on us? Heading into a busy part of the season 2/3 games a week and they will make him play both those games which for a 37 y/o can’t be good”
“That’s all well and good but from a Rangers point of view any chance he can retire from international to benefit us?”
“Time he chucked it.”
