We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish believes that it will be brilliant once Rangers midfielder Steven Davis completes his coaching badges after retiring.
The Northern Ireland international has likely signed for his final year at Ibrox next season after signing a new contract at Ibrox in the past month.
McLeish admitted that the veteran has been a fantastic servant for the Bears, and claimed it was no surprise to learn his desire for coaching.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “It’s no surprise.
“Steven Davis has given the game a fantastic period of time, and he has graced it. He has over 100 caps for Northern Ireland, and the fact he is still playing at the top level.
“Everybody thought when he first came that his legs had gone and he couldn’t do what he used to do, but he just needed to get his sharpness up again. The knowledge of the guy and is a great asset.
“The game will be all the better off with guys like that doing his coaching badges.”
There are a number of experienced figures in this Gers squad, and they have been critical to the success we have encountered this season.
Allan McGregor and Jermain Defoe will also be great influences and the striker is the only one left to put pen-to-paper on a contract.
Davis will be playing a big role in the squad, not only featuring, but helping the development of some younger options will also be so critical.
