Premier League star and Brighton midfielder Adam Lallana has sounded out a Rangers battle cry as he praised Gers midfielder Steven Davis.

The ex-Southampton man was a teammate of Davo’s at St. Mary’s and was speaking as the Ulsterman prepares to break the Northern Irish cap record against Bosnia.

Davis matched the record set by the legendary Pat Jennings during the last international break and prepares to captain his country in the UEFA Nations League playoff against the Balkan nation.

There’s been a host of big names out praising the midfielder ahead of the tie – which could edge Northern Ireland one step closer to Euro 2020 – including Ronald Koeman, Virgil van Dijk, Mauricio Pochettino and Steven Gerrard.

But far from just praise Steven Davis, ex-Liverpool attacking midfielder Lallana also shouted out “up the Rangers”.

“What an achievement,” said Lallana [Sky Sports].

“To make your 120th cap for your country is something to be immensely proud of.

“Don’t underestimate the sacrifices you’ve had to make, with family, with club football as well, and to reach your 120th cap, there’s not many other internationals that have done that.

“Top man, top player, and up the Rangers as well, c’mon the boys.”

The comments of Lallana, 32, are especially interesting after Rangers fans previously speculated over whether the club could move for the player with his contract expiring at Liverpool.

But after securing a three-year deal at high-flying Brighton this summer the former Saints man will be eager to impress in the Premier League.

Still, it’s good to get an insight into where the attacking midfielder’s allegiances lie north of the border.
