Frank McAvennie has heaped praise on Rangers midfielder Steven Davis after he starred against Ross County on Sunday.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Celtic and St Mirren striker hailed the “grace and quality” of the 35-year-old who is learning from “the best” in Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister.

The former Southampton player started his eighth Scottish Premiership game of the season at Dingwall and produced a midfield masterclass alongside Joe Aribo and Glen Kamara.

A 4-0 win saw the Gers move 13 points clear of second-placed Celtic, who have two games in hand.

Davis has just six months left on his contract at Ibrox having penned a two-year deal upon his arrival in July 2019.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the midfielder’s performances this season, McAvennie said: “It is amazing what he is doing.

“He is having a wonderful season but it is not great to watch as a Celtic supporter.

“Looking at Steve he is still showing the grace and quality that he has done for years. He looks after himself and does everything right. What a pro.

“He is so calm and he brings so much experience to that squad.

“Everyone at Rangers is enjoying it. Even when Davis is left out of the team, Jack, Aribo, Kamara – it is seamless.

“That is down to great coaching and a midfielder like Steve Davis cannot go wrong with Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister working with him daily. They are two of the best about. If the boys at Rangers cannot listen to Gerrard, who will they listen to?

“It must be a nightmare in training if Gerrard and Gary McAllister join in!”
