Rangers midfielder Davis addresses speculation over potential new deal

Steven Davis has addressed speculation that he will sign a new Rangers contract, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times. 

The veteran midfielder was speaking following the Gers’ comfortable win over Hearts in Sunday’s League Cup semi-final, in which he put in another strong display.

It’s been reported in recent days that a new deal will be offered to Northern Ireland’s record capped outfield player [Scottish Sun], but he says no concrete discussions have taken place.

“We haven’t sat down and spoken about anything just yet,” said Davis, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times. “But I think you can see I’m enjoying my football, that’s why I’m playing the way I am and the team’s performing well too.”

“I haven’t given it too much thought but if those talks do happen it’ll be done quite easily, I’m sure.”

Davis is clearly satisfied with things as they are at the moment, probably knowing that if he continues to perform to recent levels, an extension is inevitable.

It’s great news for Bears that he’s indicated he’ll stay on without hesitation, though.

He’s one of the few members of the Gers squad with real experience of winning silverware, helping secure eight major trophies during his first spell at Ibrox between 2008 and 2012.

There’s a clear desire to add to that tally and keeping him fit and orchestrating things in midfield is key to the Gers hopes not just in the League Cup final but also in the quest for a 55th top-flight title.
