Rangers fans lavish Ibrox "maestro" with praise after "masterclass"

As Rangers trounced Ross County 4-0 in Dingwall, the “masterclass” performance of Steven Davis caught the eye of an appreciative Ibrox support.

There might’ve been 300 home fans in the stadium but the Rangers support had to do with watching the match from home as the club romped to a comfortable victory courtesy of three second-half goals.

But it was Davis’ contribution for the only goal of the first half which most impressed Rangers fans and summed up his composed, experienced and quality performance.

As Morelos dropped deep and rolled the ball to the Ulsterman, James Tavernier had taken off down the right-hand side.

Davis, who turns 36 in January, then rolled an inch-perfect pass through what was proving a stubborn defence to the on-running Tavernier.

The Rangers captain would come on to the ball, cross it to Kemar Roofe who’d nip in front of a sleeping Ross County defence to put the Gers in front.

It was the stand-out moment from a vintage Davis display in which he controlled possession, dictated the tempo and stood out as a calming, professional presence.

There was plenty of skill too – the Ulsterman’s cheeky rabona at the edge of the County box finding Kemar Roofe in an industriously technical little move which also earned the applause of fans.

Davis has been one of the club’s top performers this season and Rangers fans took to Twitter to salute the Ulsterman for his latest performance:

It was an absolutely top-class display from the Ulster Xavi who is proving age is just a number with his composed performances this season.

The crazy thing is, Davis didn’t even claim the Man of the Match as another on-form Ibrox talisman continues to prove his value to the club.
