  • "I said weeks ago that we should go for Steven Davis. Being based in Scotland I am of the view he was Rangers best player for the past three seasons. Where does this leave Hammond! Once again Saints are quietly doing things behind the scenes. Before Rangers were liquidated, the Daily Record said we would have to pay two million for him. We have saved some cash which is always a good thing. I noted today that Spurs are bidding 7 million for Butland. However I know a very good goal keeper who is available for nothing his name is Alan McGregor the Scotland keeper who like Davis refused to sign for the Newco . He would be a good bit of business."

First published in Sport

Steven Davis has become the latest player to put the Rangers saga behind him by signing a three-year deal at Southampton.

The 27-year-old was captain of the beleaguered Scottish side but left after rejecting a transfer to the newco club.

Davis follows the likes of Kyle Lafferty and Steven Whittaker out of the club and has joined newly-promoted Saints until 2015.

The move marks Davis’ return to the Barclays Premier League, where he played for both Aston Villa and Fulham.

The central midfielder left the latter for Rangers in 2008 after an initial loan and went on to win the 2010 Scottish Players' Player of the Year and captain the Ibrox club.

Northern Ireland skipper Davis becomes Saints’ second signing since promotion back to the top flight, following Jay Rodriguez’s £6million move from Burnley.
