Glasgow Rangers midfielder Steven Davis will be critical if the Ibrox outfit are to end their trophy drought and beat Celtic in today’s Scottish League Cup final.
The Gers fans were raving about the veteran playmaker after another top-class performance in the one-sided 5-0 win over a struggling Hearts side last weekend.
The Rangers supporters were all excited when they found out that their former midfield star was prepared to leave Southampton to return to Rangers – his boyhood heroes – over the summer.
The 34-year-old initially struggled after returning in January for a second spell at Ibrox.
This was down to game rustiness at the time, but once he got back to full match fitness, he’s been absolutely immense.
I’ll say it again, the older wiser Davis is possibly even better than the younger Ulsterman was when he left Rangers initially, and I’m sure it’s down to his Premier League experiences.
Davis appears to be running most of the games he plays in now, with a plethora of splendid passes.
The midfield maestro seems to be making all the right decisions and is such an asset to Steven Gerrard and his Rangers side.
Although he’s the mainstay of the team, goalscoring is not one of his biggest assets, but he does make the whole team tick, and he does a power of work in every game he plays.
For Rangers to overcome Celtic at Hampden on Sunday, winning the midfield battle and controlling possession will be key – Davis is the key man for the Gers in this regard.
