Rangers star Steven Davis is close to signing a new contract at Ibrox, according to a report, with the veteran midfielder set to sign on “imminently.”
According to the Daily Record, the Northern Irish international will remain a Rangers player for another season after uncertainty over his future going into the summer.
Davis’ current deal ends this summer but with the Light Blues expected to be busy in the transfer market, the 37-year-old’s experience could prove invaluable.
Motherwell and St Mirren had both been linked with summer moves for the former Ibrox captain if he left Rangers this summer but both will now have to look elsewhere with Davo committing to the Gers.
Rangers still need to add some new faces alongside Davis this summer to bolster title hopes
With news of Davis signing a new deal, Rangers have made sure to keep one of the most experienced players at the club – but there still needs to be at least one new face in midfield.
There were times over the last ten months when Rangers really lacked a creative spark in the middle of the pitch and van Bronckhorst needs to put that right this summer.
The Light Blues already look set to lose Connor Goldson this summer when the defender’s contract comes to an end, with Leon Balogun in talks over a new deal and Allan McGregor mulling over his future.
Davis might not even find himself playing too much next season but his experience from a career that’s seen him play in two European finals, win a British record number of caps and win various titles can really help van Bronckhorst’s side achieve their aims next season.
