Steven Davis is set to sign for Rangers, but it’s likely to be initially on a six-month loan basis only, rather than a permanent deal, according to The Daily Record.

It was reported last week that he had agreed an 18-month contract in principle, but that appears to have fallen by the wayside, even though the player completed a medical on Saturday alongside confirmed signing Jermain Defoe.

The deal is expected to be completed in time for the midfielder to join up with his new teammates at the winter training camp in Tenerife, but it seems he is eager to keep his options option come the end of the season when his deal at Southampton expires.

That’s definitely not the ideal scenario and might lead to some supporters calling into question his desire to prove himself at Ibrox, after initially leaving the club under a cloud in 2012.

He was one of the players that opted to leave the Gers on the cheap during a period of financial trouble, angering many fans.

Still, he has the quality and experience to help Steven Gerrard’s side challenge for major honours this season and we can’t wait to see him make his debut.

Hopefully he settles well in his second spell at the club and eventually commits to longer stay in Glasgow.
