Rangers fans have been saluting Northern Irish captain Steven Davis as he becomes the most capped international footballer in Ibrox history.

Whilst Davo’s 130th international cap might’ve ended in disappointment as NI were defeated 2-1 by Bulgaria, it was still a momentous occasion for the UK’s most capped international.

The result ends Northern Ireland’s World Cup Qualifying campaign and it’ll be a bitter one for Davis who in his advancing years may not get another shot at the tournament with his country.

At 36 Davis continues to astound for both club and country and has always been a willing footballer whose career has been defined by consistency, professionalism and performances at the highest level.

The Ulster Xavi continues to pull the strings for club and country and reaching this number is a remarkable feat worthy of the plaudits being sent to him.

The title of most-capped Rangers international only further cements the one-time Rangers’ captain into the club’s history.

Davis has made 324 appearances for Rangers in two stints at the club, scoring 25 goals and laying on 69 assists.

A boyhood bluenose, it doesn’t get much better than the four Scottish top flight trophies, the two Scottish Cups and the three League Cups for the Northern Irishman.

The midfielder’s quality was also clear during Davis’ six and a half years with Southampton for whom he captained during his time in the Premier League.

Rangers fans took to Twitter following Norn Iron’s defeat to Bulgaria to toast a midfielder who they believe is still one of the best in the business:

 

There will be no Northern Ireland or Steven Davis at Qatar 2022 after defeats to Switzerland and Bulgaria ended the Rangers midfielder’s faint qualification hopes.

But one Rangers star continues to prove he can be a driving force for his country after digging them out of a hole in their own qualification quest for the tournament.
