Alan Hutton revealed he believes that Rangers have suffered a massive blow with Steven Davis set to miss a few games through injury.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former Gers defender admitted it was just devastating to see the midfielder miss out on facing Celtic, let alone consider that he’ll miss further games.
Steven Gerrard officially provided an update on Davis ahead of the Scottish Cup final as he shared that the midfielder was suffering from a calf injury and would likely miss two or three games.
Hutton gushed about Davis over his recent performances and added that he was just hoping he’ll be fit again sooner rather than later.
When asked about Davis being injured and Gerrard suggesting he’ll miss two or three games, Hutton told Football Insider: “I think it’s a massive blow.
“It was even a massive blow to hear he wouldn’t start (against Celtic) to be honest.
“He works behind-the-scenes, flies under-the-radar a little bit as you have all these guys scoring goals, you have Kent, Morelos, Ryan Jack and all these guys getting goals, but he (Davis) just goes about his business.
“He marshals the midfield and keeps Rangers ticking.
“He’s been playing brilliantly and I was devastated to hear he wouldn’t be playing, I’m just hoping he’s not out too long.”
Davis has played 25 times across all competitions for Gerrard’s side this season and has racked up one goal as well as two assists in the process.
The 34-year-old Northern Ireland international joined the Gers on a permanent basis from Southampton in the summer after previously spending his 2018/19 campaign on loan at Ibrox.
