'Outstanding' - Exclusive: Paul Robinson blown away by Rangers ace who started v Hearts

Paul Robinson admits he has been left blown away by the performances of Rangers midfielder Steven Davis this season.

The former Tottenham and England goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that the 35-year-old has been “outstanding” for Steven Gerrard in the midfield this season.

The Northern Ireland international started his 39th game of the campaign on Saturday, lining up alongside Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield in the Scottish Cup clash against Hearts.

Having seen the veteran midfielder play a crucial role for Gerrard this season, Robinson has applauded the former Southampton man for the way he has looked after himself.

“Steven Davis this year for Rangers has been outstanding,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“He’s played over 30 games, he’s not going to chip in with that many goals, he’s not going to get that many assists but he’s in the engine room, he makes the team tick.

“To do that at 35-years-old, it’s an absolute credit to himself that he manages to perform the way he does week in, week out.” 

Davis, who signed permanently at Ibrox on a free transfer last summer, has established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet under Gerrard, missing just four Premiership and one Europa League game.

He has a total of 256 appearances under his belt for the club, having spent four years in Glasgow between 2008 and 2012.
