Northern Ireland and Glasgow Rangers midfield general Steven Davis is still performing as well at 34 as he ever has in his illustrious career.

The Gers playmaker has played more than 250 Premier League games and won over a 100 caps for his county.

Davis is captain of the Northern Ireland side that is still competing for the the 2020 European Championships and playing brilliantly for Rangers in the SPFL – and possibly even better in the Europa League Group games.

Another stalwart of the Rangers first XI is goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who continues to make sensational saves on a regular basis since coming back to the Ibrox club.

Rangers’ successful run in Europe has shown the Ibrox faithful what having McGregor and Davis playing in the same side can bring to a team. 

Some McGregor saves have been breathtaking, and that is what he was brought back from Hull City to perform at Ibrox – and to that amazingly high standard.

Steven Gerrard appears to have finally settled with playing the same settled ten players in the most important games of the season, and he also has very decent back-ups for the other positions and players in the squad.

Here are his first pick goalkeeper and back four, especially in the European matches. McGregor, James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Filip Helander, Borna Barisic.

Most fans would agree that the main strength of the team is the vital midfield maestros of Steven Davis, Ryan Jack and Glen Kamara.

Once you add the biggest asset of the squad with centre forward Alfredo Morelos and £7 million winger Ryan Kent, you have little room in your first team for many more players. 

He also has Jermain Defoe, Joe Aribo, Scott Arfield, Sheyi Ojo, Brandon Barker, Jordan Jones, Greg Stewart, Jamie Murphy, Matt Polster, Andy Halliday, Nikola Katic, George Edmundson, Jon Flanagan to choose from. 

During their first successful time at Rangers, Davis lifted eight trophies and McGregor managed to gain ten.

It was an enjoyable winning period for both legends, playing with other top notch players and great team mates every game. 

But can Davis and McGregor add to their impressive medal tally this season under the direction of new boss Gerrard?
