Rangers ace reacts on Twitter to Steven Davis heroics for Southampton

Rangers FC - Ibrox

The former Rangers man dazzled for Southampton in the Premier League win at Tottenham.

Former Rangers midfielder Steven Davis scored twice in helping Southampton to a somewhat surprising 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

The Northern Irishman, who left Rangers to join the Saints in 2012, cancelled out Heung-Min Son's 16th-minute opener just after the half-hour mark, before curling a 70th-minute winner past Hugo Lloris to win all three points.

The 31-year-old is fondly remembered at the Gers after helping Rangers scoop eight trophies during his four-year spell with the Glasgow giants, and his compatriot and fellow midfielder Jordan Thompson reacted to his Tottenham heroics on Twitter.

 

Davis left the Old Firm club following their demotion to the fourth tier of Scottish football, but Rangers have finally sealed their return to the top flight this season after Mark Warburton's side dominated the Scottish Championship.

 

It might be a little longer before they are back to where they were in terms of titles and whatnot, but Rangers certainly appear to be on the right track under the ex-Brentford boss.
