Rangers insiders Heart & Hand claim summer signing Ben Davies “will be sold” at the end of the season.

The Gers spent a reported £4m to being the highly-rated centre-back to Ibrox from Liverpool, although he never played a game for the Anfield club.

More synonymous from his time at Preston North End, the defender had been strongly linked to Celtic before that ill-fated switch to Merseyside.

The first part of the player’s season was badly interrupted by injury but since Ben Davies has come into the side he’s had a hard time convincing Rangers supporters.

The defender is viewed as unsuitable for the blood and thunder of life at Ibrox whilst high profile mistakes have supporter confidence in the player at an all time low.

Heart & Hand tip Ben Davies to leave Rangers

Speaking after the 1-0 defeat to Celtic, where Rangers once again surrendered a victory to their Old Firm rivals, Heart & Hand claim Ben Davies is set to vacate Rangers.

“(Ben) Davies will be sold,” tweets Heart & Hand host David Edgar.

“I’m pretty confident.”

The situation with Ben Davies sums up what’s been a disastrous season for Rangers, as the club’s clear need for change in the summer was ignored.

Those players that did come into the club, either on expensive fees, wages or both, have failed to make an impact on the campaign.

Ben Davies is joined by the likes of Ridvan Yilmaz, Tom Lawrence and Rabbi Matondo in not having enough of an impact on the season.

With a big summer of change ahead, Rangers manager Michael Beale has been discussing what’s next.

“Something in the words you used because there is a number out of contract,” said Beale when asked about the summer.

“What I said [against St Mirren] was about the boys playing who were all in contract. Within the one or two I’ve mentioned are two that are out of contract.

“Everyone else is in contract so they’re not going anywhere overnight. There will be change we know that.

“Now is probably not the time to discuss that because I get when you win everything is brilliant, we wouldn’t be having this discussion if we win the game. We’ve lost it. Let’s deal with today.”

Going by these comments, it would certainly suggest Heart & Hand aren’t too far off the scent with Ben Davies potentially leaving Rangers.
