'Not happening' - Insider pours cold water on prospect of veteran returning to Rangers

Former Rangers midfielder Steven Davis will not be making a sensational return to Ibrox this summer, according to a club insider.

Est Consultancy, which has a stellar track record at breaking transfer stories at Ibrox, believes that the 33-year-old will not be rejoining the Gers six years after originally leaving the club.

Sky Sports initially reported that the Gers were interested in bringing the Northern Irish international back to Glasgow, from Southampton, but at this moment in time it seems unlikely that the Gers will be completing what would be a very intriguing signing.

Football Insider verdict

The fact that the insider claims that the deal is not happening ‘as it stands’ means that there is a slight chances that Steven Davis could make a sensational return to Ibrox, but at the moment it does seem to be unlikely. Davis had an excellent spell with the Gers in his first spell at the club, winning a host of titles and being named as Scotland’s player of the year in 2010. Perhaps the middle of the park is not an area that Steven Gerrard and Mark Allen are looking to strengthen in at the moment, but whilst the transfer window is open, they could well make a move for their former captain later in the transfer window. All that is pure speculation at the moment, but if the Gers are looking to add some experience to their side as they look to get back to the top of the Scottish Premiership, then Davis is certainly capable of that, as he is still a very capable player, even at this advanced stage of his career.
