When Michael Beale named his Rangers squad for the Champions League qualifying round against Servette, the most noticeable absentee was Ben Davies.

Speculation was rife that a potential exit was on the cards and links to other central defenders like Harry Souttar and Jake Cooper only added to this.

A report on Sky Sports has revealed that, after missing being missing since the pre-season game against Hoffenheim, Rangers have Ben Davies back fit and in training.

Rangers boss Beale has Ben Davies decision to make

There is interest in the 28-year old defender, in the know fan media Heart and Hand have claimed that there are English clubs considering picking up the phone.

All the Gers gaffer will be concerned about at the moment is that he has a near fully fit squad.

The weekend gives the Rangers boss a great chance to rotate his squad with the visit of Morton and Ben Davies should be looking to start.

Alongside him, given how healthy the squad is, players like Leon King, Dujon Sterling and Ianis Hagi should also see valuable game time.

Ridvan Yilmaz, Tom Lawrence and Kemar Roofe will also be welcome names in the squad.

His future at Rangers is uncertain but Ben Davies could still have a big part to play this season if he is here when the window shuts.

John Souttar and Leon Balogun have indifferent injury histories of late so having strength in numbers might not be a bad thing.

Ben Davies being injured saw him miss out on the Champions League squad for Servette but he should be included next time around.

Group stage football is guaranteed again for this season and the last thing we want is to see John Lundstram playing at the back again, in fact, he shouldn’t even be in midfield if the current status quo continues.

Long may it continue.
