Charlie Adam has said that while James Tavernier has produced spectacular numbers for Rangers this season, Steven Davis is the player who’s held the midfield together.
Adam said he has been “phenomenal” and that despite his age he “never has a day off”.
36-year-old Davis has played 28 of the 31 Premiership games this season, starting in 22 of them.
Rangers could win the title this weekend and talking on The Football Show on Friday, Adam claimed he was the standout player in the hunt for 55.
“Tavernier will get a lot of plaudits because of the numbers he’s producing for Rangers, which are phenomenal,” said Adam.
“It’s not just this season, it’s the numbers he’s produced since joining Rangers.
“But it’s the McGregors and Davies’, they’re dictating the games and that’s the important thing.
“McGregor’s form has been outstanding for a goalkeeper, 39 years of age, he’s phenomenal.
“Davis comes in trains, never has a day off, trains the same as every other lad, gets no special treatment.
“Even when it’s not going well for Rangers, he’s the one who seems to be playing well. He’s the cog in the wheel that keeps it turning, always in the right position. That’s priceless.
“I think Steven Davis has to get special mention, keeping that whole group in the midfield together. Davis has been there day in, day out and he’s been phenomenal for me.”
Squad has been sensational
It’s hard to pick just one player from this Rangers squad.
To a man, they’ve been – to steal a word from Charlie Adam – phenomenal but Davis does deserve special mention.
He’s homing in on 300 games for Rangers now and he’s rolled back the years with his performances this season.
McGregor has been almost faultless between the sticks and Tavernier missing the game when we win the title would be tragic.
We also think Alfredo Morelos deserves plaudits. It’s been incredibly hard for him in Scotland, recently, with the booking in the last game a real kick in the teeth.
He’s matured into a very special player and more of an all-round striker who’s supported his teammates and put in a massive contribution towards 55.
We’re lucky to have so many players who have done so much and Steven Gerrard is the glue that’s held it all together.
