Stuart McCall applauds 'fantastic' Davis, says he has a few years left
Stuart McCall believes Steven Davis has been superb this season and thinks the midfielder should be named Rangers player of the year.
The former Ger was asked about Davis’ future and McCall thinks he has more to give, claiming his form this season has been a massive bonus for Rangers.
He praised Davis’ contribution on and off the pitch and thinks he is a great figure for the youngsters at the club to look up to.
As quoted by the Daily Record, McCall said, “The Rangers people who are in there with Davis can look at how he does everything.
“It’s a massive bonus that he’s playing so well.
“What is Steve now? 36. He’s got more football in him, without a doubt.
“I’d probably, at this stage, give it to Davis – for his bicycle kick alone. He’s a fantastic role model.”
Play till your 40 Steven
We are very fortunate to have a player like Davis in the squad and news of his contract extension last month was very welcome.
And the 36-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down, luckily for us, with his bicycle kick against Celtic just one example of how good and nimble he still is.
His performances this season have been nothing short of extraordinary, as is the fact he has only missed three league games this term.
Davis has managed 88% pass accuracy, the fourth-best of our regular starters, and he has also managed a third-highest 1.3 interceptions per game [WhoScored].
He is the focal point of midfield and it little surprise the likes of Glen Kamara and Joe Aribo have progressed since playing alongside him.
The Northern Ireland international is also a perfect role model for Nathan Patterson and with young Nnamdi Ofoborh arriving in the summer, Davis could have a young apprentice to take under his wing.
