Sky Sports pundit Kris Boyd has urged Rangers to get the deal to sign Steven Davis done this January, believing he can add real quality to Steven Gerrard’s first-team squad.
Latest reports from The Scottish Sun suggest that Rangers are on the brink of signing up the Southampton man to an 18-month deal.
The Northern Ireland international has been consistently linked with a move to Ibrox for a number of months now and with the transfer window opening again, it appears the club are wasting no time in making their move.
Boyd believes it could be a great bit of business.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, the Kilmarnock striker said:
Rangers need reinforcements and I would like to see the Davis deal done. He is a fantastic player — and he knows what it means to play for Rangers.
Their recruitment hasn’t been great and a number of players have not lived up to their price tag. Rather than taking a punt, they should go and get someone of quality like Steven.
Rangers also need another striker, despite Alfredo Morelos doing remarkably well. Getting someone in for that position — and seeing Kyle Lafferty improve his form — would give Morelos the sort of challenge he needs to push on.
Having won eight trophies with Rangers in his first spell at Ibrox, there’s no doubt that Davis has the kind of winning mentality we may need to truly compete for the Scottish Premiership title this term.
He’s played at the top level for six years now, amassing hundreds of appearances for Southampton and Northern Ireland.
The kind of experience would be silly to pass up on, especially if he is keen on return to Ibrox and making amends for the circumstances of his departure in 2012.
Personally, I’d love to see this deal done in the next few days.
