Rangers may be disappointed not to end the season with any silverware, however, Steven Gerrard’s side has certainly come along way in the last 12 months or so. A number of changes were made in the summer and winter transfer windows and it would not be a surprise to see the Light Blues be active once again when the next one comes by.
Gerrard made a number of loan deals to try and bolster his squad in certain areas and it appears there is an air of confidence that they can turn one of those temporary acquisitions into a permanent one.
What’s the News?
According to Football Insider, Rangers are confident of turning Steven Davis’ loan spell into a permanent deal in the summer.
The hugely experienced Northern Ireland international re-joined the Light Blues in January from Southampton and the Gers are keen to keep him at Ibrox on a full-time basis for at least another year.
Gerrard is believed to feel that the 34-year-old still has plenty to give on and off the pitch and feels that could be valuable in their pursuit for glory next season.
Davis’ contract at Southampton is expected to come to an end in the summer and it would make perfect sense for Rangers to take full advantage of the situation.
The Northern Ireland international may have struggled at times during his spell at Ibrox, however, he has recently come into some form that has shown that he still has the ability required to play at the level expected at the Light Blues.
Plus, the fact that the 34-year-old knows what being a Ger is all about and the vast amount of experience he has gained during his career is something that Gerrard should definitely look to tap into and look for his younger squad members to develop from.
With the likes of Scott Arfield attracting plenty of unwanted interest and Lassana Coulibaly looking likely to head back to Angers in the summer once his loan deal comes to an end after a poor second half of the season, keeping Davis at Ibrox might just be a sensible thing for Rangers to do.
Davis took a huge pay-cut to rejoin his former club in the winter, although it meant he would still be one of their highest earners, and it remains to be seen if he will continue to accept those terms or look for something different.
