The Belfast Telegraph reported earlier in December that a return to Ibrox was 'almost certain' to materialise.

The Northern Ireland international earns a reported £60,000 per week at Southampton [Spotrac] but, according to Sky Sports, he is willing to accept a reduced salary - and the Saints are open to it.

 

But the report adds that the wages could still represent a 'potential stumbling block' for the Gers.

He previously spent four years with the Glasgow giants and bringing him back would be quite a coup for manager Steven Gerrard, whose side sit level on points with Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic at the summit.

A signing of this calibre might just prove to be the difference between success and failure for Gerrard's side, given Davis's ability.

He might turn 34 on New Years Day, but someone of his ilk still has a number of years left in the tank.
