Rumours: Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis may be set for Rangers return - and the fans are losing it
Rangers fans, particularly Northern Ireland based ones, are losing their minds on social media as we speak. And with good reason.
It's all down to the whisper of a rumour that NI skipper Steven Davis could be set for a sensational return to Ibrox. That seems to have originated from a tweet sent out by Rock Sport Radio reporter Bill Young. He tweeted that rumours suggest the club have held talks with the 33-year-old over a move back to Glasgow.
Young does, however, include the caveat that club boss Graeme Murty is preferring to look for younger players.

Davis played for Rangers between 2008 and 2012. He even captained the club, in the absence of David Weir, for part of his final season at Ibrox.
He is still rightly lauded for his regularly outstanding performances at international level but in club football, he has started only two of Southampton's last eight Premier League fixtures.
Now the very thought of getting him back in light blue is causing Gers fans to lose it:

And if there is any chance at all that Steven Davis would return to @RangersFC I’d have a 3 year deal and a captains armband on the table for his return.— BMC Rangers Rants (@BMCRangersRants) February 15, 2018

Anybody who would not take Steven Davis back to ibrox. Is absolutely mental. When Davis left. We agreed 800k with Southampton. And he was a good player. But now he's amazing.with premier league experience I know he's 33. But he would still be a brilliant midfielder for rangers.— Robert #letsgo (@rangerslad1983) February 15, 2018
