The glorious end approaches for Steven Davis at Rangers

The glorious end approaches for Steven Davis at Rangers
Well deserved....

It does look now like it’s the end of the Ibrox road for long-term stalwart Steven Davis. The NI legend has suffered niggling injuries for a few months now, and wasn’t really a preferred choice of new manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst anyway, so the winding down of his playing career at Ibrox has been a gradual but gentle exit.

The guy has been a star for us – sure, his performances pre-Gio this season hadn’t quite hit the sumptuous level of last campaign, in which he was literally sensational, but he gave so much on his return and we have to thank Steven Gerrard for bringing a player back for the end of his playing days and getting easily the best form from him that anyone ever had.

Davo was literally brilliant last season – it was the best campaign of his career, simple as that. He melodically plucked the strings, and he pulled them like a puppet master too – he was a true DaVinci at his finest, a Rembrandt, and we absolutely absorbed his qualities in the quest of 55.

He achieved his raison d’etre – he won the league with us once more and was a huge part of doing so.

But this will certainly be his last season – whether he goes into coaching at Ibrox or moves on to try to prolong his playing career with another club, the wily old ‘regista’ as Italians would say deserves a proper goodbye, and we’re sure he’ll get one.

Rangers haven’t really missed his contributions this season, because we’ve evolved. John Lundstram has evolved into the ready-made replacement, a spot more physical than Davo, but nevertheless Davis’ experience is a valuable tool and we’re sure he’s gently guiding and coaching in the background as we speak.

Could he be a part of why Lunny’s developed so well in the past couple of months? We wouldn’t be surprised.

Either way, Davo has been quite the servant, and of course, no one will forget how he refused to sign for Southampton till Rangers had been paid in 2012.

He’s one of us, a loyal footsoldier, and whether he plays again this season, he certainly has earned a proper send off.

One of our own.

  1. Absolute legend. Brilliant for us in both spells. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him have a Davie Cooper style renaissance at another club. Class act.

  2. One of the most underrated players of his generation. The most capped British footballer ever. A Rangers legend.

  3. The guy was class and no doubt about that and hope he stays at ‘Gers in some capacity but if not I wish him well whatever he decides.
