Darren Jackson has been blown away by the impact of Rangers midfielder Steven Davis throughout his career at Ibrox.

The PLZ pundit admitted that he has “always been a fan” as he continues to shine for Steven Gerrard in this phenomenal Scottish Premiership title charge.

The Northern Ireland veteran has featured 26 times in all competitions this season and continues to play a massive role for the Bears.


Speaking on the PLZ Football Show, Jackson couldn’t help but shower praise on the veteran midfielder for his class in-and-out of football.

“I’ve always been a fan,” he said.

“I think he’s a fantastic player. He obviously can’t get about the pitch like he used to do, but he keeps the ball well. I’m good pals with Michael O’Neill, and Michael speaks very, very highly about him.

“He doesn’t like the limelight, he just gets on with his job. I’ve always been a fan of Steve Davis. His experience and his class, he’s always been a top player.”


Gerrard will be delighted with Davis and the experience of him in the middle of his midfield in such a vital campaign for the Bears.

With Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack carrying injuries in recent months, it has been vital that Davis has been a constant figure in midfield alongside Glen Kamara.

Despite being 36-years-old, Davis was a constant figure over the busy Christmas period, completing 458 minutes of action in the space of 14 days.

Davis is adding crucial experience in the heart of a side that is packed with attacking brilliance, and despite going under-the-radar, he will be remembered as a key figure in this side.
