Steven Davis thinks Rangers are in a 'good place' after Gerrard departure

Veteran star Steven Davis thinks former Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will “continue to be a top, top manager” after leaving the Light Blues and admits it would have been a “huge challenge” for Gerrard to take the reins at Ibrox in his first managerial role.

With Rangers now on the search for the Liverpool legend’s replacement after his sudden defection to Aston Villa, Davis was full of praise for Gerrard and his backroom staff after working alongside them over the last few years.

While the Gers hierarchy continues their search, Davis admits nothing has really changed for Rangers after Gerrard left, insisting the Light Blues are in a ‘good place’ ahead of next weekend’s Premier Sports Cup semi-final clash with Hibs.


“I thoroughly enjoyed working with the gaffer and his staff,” Davis said [Sky Sports].

“Last year was a really special moment for us all in terms of winning the league. unfortunately in football, people get opportunities and he’s decided to take it. From a club perspective, we’re in a really strong position off the back of this international week and going into a big week and the goals remain the same. We just need to try sta focused and we’ve got the quality in the squad to do that.

“It was a huge challenge for him coming into a club the size of Rangers in his first managerial appointment and he handled it really well. The team of staff that he brought with him had a really great blend so I’ve no doubts he’s going to continue to be a top, top manager and grow as the years go on.

Davis will likely be in action tomorrow for his country when Northern Ireland face Italy in their final World Cup qualifier in Belfast.

The game could prove to be Davis’ last at international as speculation persists that the midfielder is set to retire from internationals once the campaign is over.
