Steve Davis only returned to Rangers a few days ago.

But the Northern Ireland captain is already looking to extend his stay beyond his initial six-month loan.

Davis rejoined the Gers after six-and-a-half years away as Steven Gerrard looks to get his hands on the title.

The veteran midfielder knows what it takes to lift the Premiership title having won it three times in his first spell.

At 34, Davis’ career is beginning to wind down and it could see him hang his boots up at Ibrox.

“Hopefully beyond the six months everything will go well and then we can look at things and make it a longer-term thing,” Davis told Sky Sports.

With his Southampton contract running out in the summer, he is almost certain to depart St. Mary’s.

A permanent return to Ibrox seems certain and keeping Davis around a bit longer would be a no-brainer.

 

There’s little doubt the boyhood Gers fan adds some real quality in midfield so keeping him around should be a priority for director of football Mark Allen.

Although the midfield is starting to look a bit congested, Davis and Scott Arfield have the potential to dominate games.

Going into the second part of the season with a title on the line, it could well prove to be the difference between us and Celtic.

If Gerrard’s side can get continue where they left off before the break then we’re in for a treat.
