NI skipper Steven Davis signs new deal at Rangers

Northern Ireland senior men's captain Steven Davis today signed a one-year extension to his contract with Scottish Premiership champions Rangers.

Davis - who could overtake Peter Shilton’s all-time UK international caps record in the upcoming international window - has committed his future to the Ibrox club until the summer of 2022.

Davis has been in outstanding form for Steven Gerrard’s side this season, and is sure to be among the candidates for ‘Player of the Year’ come the end of the campaign.

“It is a privilege to play at Rangers and very game for my boyhood club is special. Winning 55 was a historic moment for all of us and especially for me, as I had always said that I had unfinished business at Ibrox. As the Manager has said, this is only the beginning and I am proud to continue as a Ranger for another season,” Davis told the club's official website.

“We have plenty left to fight for this season and I am pleased that I have been able to contribute to the team. The manager and Ross were very open about their plans for me and the squad in the year ahead. I am excited for the future and especially to hear the Champions League music at Ibrox once again.”

He is a role model to his team mates and continues to strive to be a better version of himself. I am very pleased to have a player with Premier League and international experience on board as we look towards next season

Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard expressed his delight at securing the Northern Ireland skipper for another season.

“Steven embodies professionalism and continues to set the standards required to be a Rangers player. He has been instrumental this year, playing a key role in our league success," he said.

“Steven is low-maintenance and has much more to give our team, not only for the rest of this season but beyond. 

“He is a role model to his team mates and continues to strive to be a better version of himself. I am very pleased to have a player with Premier League and international experience on board as we look towards next season.”
