BT pundit: This PL midfielder will be perfect signing for Rangers
BT Sport pundit Stephen Craigan has claimed that Southampton midfielder Steven Davis would be the “perfect” signing for Rangers to make this summer.
Davis, 33, left Ibrox in the aftermath of the Glasgow club’s financial meltdown in 2012 when he signed for the Saints in deal worth £800,000.
Even though he is 33-years-of-age, Davis is still a mainstay of Southampton’s midfield in the Premier League but many Rangers fans feel as though he is someone that they could convince to quit the south coast in order to move back to Govan.
The Gers’ chances pulling off a move like that would no doubt be boosted should the Saints suffer relegation from England’s top-flight this season and with them sitting just outside the bottom three on goal difference, there is every chance of that happening.
Speaking on his personal Twitter account after Rangers’ 2-0 win against Hearts at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, Craigan claimed that Davis would be an ideal signing for the Light Blues, who he feels are in need of extra creativity in midfield.
“Steven is the perfect type agreed,” said Craigan when discussing how the Gers can improve with a supporter.
Yeah someone alongside Martin. Has to be Steven Davis for the CM role? Will need another striker for next season also in my opinion

Davis has made 24 appearances in all competitions for Southampton this term, scoring three goals and supplying one assist in the process.
The Northern Ireland can play in a defensive midfield role or behind a striker in the No 10 slot.
He made 200 total appearances in his previous spell at Rangers between 2008 and 2012.
