Rangers boss gives update on Gers star's future as deal runs down

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has insisted that it is “too early” to talk about a new contract for Steven Davis – despite the veteran Ulsterman’s deal ending in the summer.

With the Gers chasing the title and progression in the Europa League, Gerrard is adamant focus needs to be on the pitch rather than contracts as he looks to get his hands on his first trophy as manager.

“I was asked about Steven after the game and my answer was that he was in scintillating form,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“He is a top professional, fantastic to work with and we need to try and keep Steven in this place between now and the end of the season.

“If we do, I am sure he will contribute to the team well. But it is too early to discuss contracts at the moment.

“We need to keep focusing on football and that is something that myself and Ross Wilson will discuss privately with certain players, agents and their
representation at the right time.

“At the moment, all the focus needs to be on winning games.

“When the time is right we will discuss Steven’s future in private. And then when there is an update we will tell you.”

Gerrard has plenty of options in midfield just now but Davis offers something different with his experience for both club and country.

The Northern Irishman likely only has a few seasons left, at most, but he’s showing little sign yet that he’s ready to hang his boots up.

Keeping him around another season or two would make a lot of sense and help the likes of Joe Aribo as they look to cement their place in the Rangers side.
