Former Rangers midfielder Charlie Miller believes Steven Davis will be a brilliant signing if the club can get a reported deal for the player over the line this week.
Davis is said to be on the verge of finalising an 18-month, £12,000-a-week contract, with the possibility of it all being confirmed over the next 48 hours.
Miller, who won five trophies with Rangers in the 90s, believes it could be a fantastic bit of business.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, the 42-year-old said:
Rangers are going to need to bring in a few bodies in the transfer window this month, but Steven Davis coming in would be a brilliant signing. His coming back would really help Steven Gerrard — he has been there and done it in his career.
People say you should never go back but I’ve no fears at all about it — Allan McGregor has been brilliant and he came back in the summer.
He might not be playing now but I have no doubt he would be a fantastic signing for Rangers and the fans would get right behind him.
After leaving Rangers in 2012, Davis went on to make over 200 appearances for Southampton, eventually becoming the club’s captain. That’s a measure of his ability and leadership skills at the highest level, qualities that can be a massive boost to Gerrard’s first-team squad.
Having won eight trophies at Ibrox in his first spell at the club, there’s little doubt that Davis knows what it takes to win major honours in Glasgow.
With the title race heating up, what could be better than signing a guy like that in the January transfer window?
