Rangers fans are delighted as veteran midfielder Steven Davis signs a one-year contract extension at the club, keeping him at Ibrox beyond his 37th birthday.
The evergreen Northern Irish captain remains a hugely influential figure for Rangers and is many fans’ Ibrox Player of the Year.
💙 Davis 2022 💙

The ex-Southampton star and former Ibrox captain played a monumental role in securing the club’s first league title in a decade as he adds 55 to numbers 52, 53 and 54.
A future Rangers Hall of Famer, Davis was delighted to sign a new contract at Ibrox which will give him at least one more stab at the Champions League.
“It is a privilege to play at Rangers and every game for my boyhood club is special,” said Davis [Rangers].
“Winning 55 was a historic moment for all of us and especially for me, as I had always said that I had unfinished business at Ibrox.
“As the Manager has said, this is only the beginning and I am proud to continue as a Ranger for another season.
“We have plenty left to fight for this season and I am pleased that I have been able to contribute to the team.
“The manager and Ross were very open about their plans for me and the squad in the year ahead. I am excited for the future and especially to hear the Champions League music at Ibrox once again.”
Davis is a hugely popular player at Ibrox and Gers fans have applauded the move to sign the veteran Northern Irish midfielder down for another season:
Good stuff, Tav, Goldson, Greegsy and Kamara next, hopefully.

As one midfielder signs a new deal at the club, another of the Ibrox middlemen moves on like ships in the night.
Rangers confirmed during the week that a squad midfielder had moved to the Championship after a journalist broke the news on the Twitter.
