Steven Davis aims to end professional career at Rangers
Rangers midfielder Steven Davis aims to end his professional career at the Ibrox Stadium after enjoying his second stint at the Scottish club.
The 36-year-old recently guided Rangers to their first league title in 10 years, and by the looks of it, has no plans of calling it a day just yet.
Having recently signed an extension that will keep him at the club until the end of next season, he has still kept the door ajar for a future beyond the summer of 2022.
However, when the time comes and he is to hang up his boots, he aims to go out on a high and plans to end his playing days at the Ibrox Stadium.
In an interview with the BBC, he said, “It would be a dream if I was able to stay at this level and finish my career at the club on a high.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen but that would be the ideal scenario personally if that was the case.
“The body feels good and it’s great to sign for another year. We’ll reassess things again closer to the end of next season.”
Davis may have his best days behind him but he still is a vital presence inside the Rangers dressing room.
He’s played in 30 of the Gers’ 35 league games and has been one of Steven Gerrard’s trusted stalwarts on the field.
“Steven embodies professionalism and continues to set the standards required to be a Rangers player,” Gerrard said. “Steven is low-maintenance and has much more to give our team, not only for the rest of this season but beyond.”
The fact that the manager hints at something after his playing days, suggests that Davis’ personality is something he wants more of at the club and is pivotal to the club’s success.
He may not be as technical or an eye-catching headline-grabber as some of our players, but he quietly goes on about his duties every game and does phenomenally well to keep himself wage at that age.
The Rangers faithful would hate if he is to leave and end his career at another club, and by the looks of it, he has no plans on doing that.
