Steven Davis wants to sign new contract at Rangers

Steven Davis has suggested that he is open to signing a new contract at Rangers ahead of the Europa League final in Sevilla on Wednesday evening [18 May].

Davis has a contract at the Ibrox club till the end of the season, and he has always remained coy about his future.

But with the Gers on the cusp of achieving greatness, Davis has sent a message to the board that he wishes to continue beyond the end of the season.

“I’d love to be a part of this club moving forward, it’s a huge club. I’ve spent a lot of my career here, enjoyed every moment of it and hopefully there’s more to come,” said the 37-year-old midfielder, as quoted by Scottish Daily Express.

“I’ve had a long career and being in this position for the second time is an incredible feeling to be going again and playing on that stage.

“I think there will be a big buzz about the place, and everyone will try and do their best to try and win the game.

“It is an incredible achievement this far, but we have still got one more stage to go and we’re determined to lift that trophy.”

Wonderful career

Davis has had a phenomenal career, and he has done incredibly well since joining the club for the second time.

He will become the fifth Rangers player to feature in two European Cup finals.

Davis was a part of the team that played in Manchester in 2008.

The veteran midfielder also has a chance to lift another trophy this week as Rangers face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.

The former Southampton midfielder is a class player, and even at this age, he has been excellent whenever Giovanni van Bronckhorst has needed him.

It’s a big decision for the club whether to offer him a new deal. He is such an experienced player and a leader in the dressing room.

He can be a very good squad player, but the final decision rests with the manager.

Another senior player – Connor Goldson – will also become a free agent at the end of the season, and doubts remain about whether he will pen a new deal.
