Steven Gerrard was blown away by the performance of Rangers midfielder Steven Davis in the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock on Saturday.

The Northern Ireland international took home the Man of the Match award at Ibrox, as the Bears once again struggled to stamp their authority on the opposition.

Gerrard admitted that Davis was “magnificent” with his control and leadership in midfield a major part of his side.


Speaking after the game on the official website, Gerrard lauded the experience cog of his side against Kilmarnock.

“Davis was magnificent today, his anticipation and the way he controls games allows us to keep going in terms of wave after wave,” he said.

“He plays with real authority and leadership but in a quiet way and he sets standards on a daily basis that everyone else follows so I have been absolutely delighted with Steven.”

Davis was once again superb.

The midfield veteran has been phenomenal all season, with his performances going under-the-radar throughout this incredible unbeaten run.

No one will have expected the 36-year-old to play as many games as he has done in the Scottish Premiership this season, but his run has been admirable.

Davis kept an incredible 10.2% of the possession aganist Kilmarnock according to WhoScored, more than anyone on the pitch.

Gerrard has lauded Davis, and rightly so.
