Loan Ranger Steven Davis has intimated his desire to stay at Ibrox for the long term after his initial six-month loan deal from Southampton comes to an end.

The former Rangers captain has rejoined the club after six years with the Saints. Steven Davis became synonymous with the south coast side during his time in England. He even became Club Captain.

But now the Northern Ireland legend sees his future back in Glasgow. And he’s got plenty of time to make up. Speaking to Sky Sports, Davis even discussed the idea of retiring at the club.

But Davis is more focused on the immediate future.

“Who knows? Football always throws up a few surprises,” said Davis.

“But hopefully beyond the six months everything will go well and then we can look at things and make it a longer-term thing.”

The midfielder also went on to say “nobody had to sell the club” to him. He knows what Rangers is all about and he will be a valuable addition for the second half of the season. In Davis and Defoe Rangers got two players of Premier League quality.

Whether the midfielder will get to extend his stay beyond June remains to be seen. Although I’d imagine it is likely.

But the nature of the current deal will keep the new Rangers number 10 on his toes.

Davis spent over four years at Rangers between 2008 and 2012, playing over 200 times and winning eight trophies.
