With the focus elsewhere after Rangers updated their Champions League squad, the transfer situation surrounding Ben Davies appeared to go unnoticed.

The decision to drop Romanian playmaker Ianis Hagi from the club’s European squad for the playoff clash with PSV was the move which immediately spawned the most headlines.

After all, the 24-year-old had just publicly vented his frustrations over a lack of playing time previously with Michael Beale going on to suggest a transfer could happen before the window closes.

The man who replaced him – Rabbi Matondo – would then go on to vindicate Michael Beale’s decision by scoring in the 2-2 draw with PSV Eindhoven at Ibrox.

But with Ben Davies – another Rangers first-teamer routinely linked with a transfer out of the club this summer – also brought into the side it’s got some Gers fans talking.

Does Ben Davies have Rangers future?

Returning from injury, the defender was on the bench as Rangers faced off against the Eredivisie side with John Souttar seemingly the first choice option alongside Connor Goldson.

Rangers also had the returning Leon Balogun and academy graduate Leon King on the bench with the club’s defensive injury woes (almost) completely behind them.

With that in mind, and Rangers manager Michael Beale pointing towards a new incoming centre-back transfer, it stands to reason that Ben Davies might be sold.

There’s been plenty said on the subject already this summer, with club insiders Heart & Hand convinced that Ben Davies would exit Ibrox in this window.

However, the centre-back’s Champions League inclusion hints at Ben Davies having a future in Glasgow with any transfer talk seemingly premature.

Signed on a deal which could reach a reported £4m from Liverpool only last season, injury, confidence issues and a lack of form has impacted the defender’s time in Glasgow.

But perhaps like the other man who came into the Champions League squad alongside him, redemption is on the mind of the defender who is still very much a Rangers player.
