Ben Davies might not be around for much longer and Rangers manager Michael Beale has hinted that he still has work to do in the transfer market but that departures might be needed first.

Players are still being linked with moves to the Light Blues and speculation continues to link players with moves away from Ibrox.

One such player is Ben Davies who is said to have clubs interested in him, however, it is Rangers reported links to Zak Vyner and Jake Cooper that suggests his time in Glasgow could soon be up.

Ben Davies now finds himself in the awkward position of no longer being an automatic pick for the left-sided centre-half role for Rangers.

John Souttar has been our most consistent player since pre-season and Leon Balogun returned with a display of old against Livingston.

At that to the weekend speculation that has seen Zak Vyner and Jake Cooper mentioned as possible targets and it doesn’t look good for a second season in Glasgow for the former Liverpool defender.

As senior players, neither of the targets named would be wanting to give up regular football to sit on the bench or in the stands even if it is for a bigger and more illustrious club.

There are still a couple of question marks over players in the squad.

Ben Davies is, probably, the player who has the biggest doubts in terms of his place in the Rangers squad.

The other factor is that, for a potential £4m, Rangers paid a decent fee for the 28-year old defender and if he isn’t going to be first pick then he should be moved on if a suitable bid is received.

Beale might not have made a concrete move for Vyner or Cooper yet but there is no smoke without fire and the rumour mill will only continue to churn until the window is shut.
