Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Northern Irish star Steven Davis had “no chance” of making today’s League Cup final clash with Celtic after suffering a calf injury.
The Gers boss also confirmed that Davis is set to miss “two or three weeks” of action as he recovers, meaning he could miss the whole run of games through to the winter break.
Missing the midfielder will be a big blow for Rangers in the coming weeks but should give an opportunity to the likes of Joe Aribo to prove his worth after Gerrard gave an update on Davis’ injury.
“He had no chance,” Gerrard told BT Sport before kickoff (14.45)
“He has a calf problem and will miss two or three weeks.”
The midfielder had been a doubt all week but it looks as though he was never ruled out simply as a bit of brinksmanship from the Rangers manager.
Davis has made 25 appearances this season for Gerrard’s side and has been absolutely key in the centre of the park.
With a string of massive games over the coming weeks, Gerrard will be keen to get the veteran back as quickly as possible.
