Davis opens up on struggling to perform after Rangers return

Rangers midfielder Steven Davis has admitted that he was left frustrated after struggling to make an immediate impact following his Ibrox return in January.
The Northern Irish international took a bit of time to find his feet after his making his return to the Gers after seven years with Southampton but has since put in a string of fantastic performances.

Davis told how he help “open” talks with manager Steven Gerrard and got his head down in training before eventually winning his place in the side – and a one-year contract with the Light Blues.
“Obviously it was disappointing, frustrating, just all the feelings you’d expect to come to mind. Listen, I’ve been in the game long enough,” Davis told the Evening Times.

“I knew I just needed to get my head down. So I worked away. I had conversations with the manager as well that will stay between us.
“He was quite open with me and I was quite open with him. There weren’t any issues there.
“I believed in the quality I’ve got and that I could make a good impact. I just had to wait for that next chance and try to show the manager what I can do.”
Davis is almost certain to start against Hibs later this afternoon as Gerrard’s side look to pick up a fifth win on the bounce for the first time this season.

With the game also marking one year since Gerrard’s appointment in the hot seat, it’ll be an interesting afternoon at Ibrox.
After finding his form, Davis will be key for the Gers as they look to inflict Paul Heckingbottom’s first league defeat since replacing Neil Lennon in February.
