RANGERS are today delighted to announce that Steven Davis has joined the club on a one-year-deal.

The 34-year-old rejoined the Gers in January on a six month loan deal from Southampton and now makes his return permanent.

This is the Northern Ireland captain’s second spell at Ibrox having previously played from 2007 to 2012, winning three league titles, two Scottish Cups, three League Cups and reaching the UEFA Cup Final.

Since his return from Premier League Southampton in January the midfielder has made 16 appearances under Steven Gerrard, taking his total appearances for the club to 227.

Speaking exclusively to RangersTV Davis said: “I am obviously delighted my future has been sorted out.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed, especially in the last couple of weeks, the performances of the team as they have been really good and I think there has been a lot of progress made this season.

“We are disappointed that we didn’t manage to pick up any silverware to this point, but there is a lot to look forward to in the future.

“[To begin with], it was a case of myself and the club getting the initial period out of the way and seeing how everything went as my family are still down south. That has been different, but I am delighted to now get everything signed and sealed.”

Steven Gerrard commented: “Rangers fans have started to see a fully fit Steven Davis over the past month.

“He looks sharp, is covering all round the pitch, winning the ball back, intercepting balls and looking aggressive.

“That is why we brought him back in January and why we want him as part of this squad going forward.”
