Ibrox flop has no intention of being bundled out the door

Ben Davies has no intention of walking away from his lucrative Ibrox contract.

Signed last summer for £4m from Liverpool the defender dropped in and out of the side last season and was part of the comic cut defending that lost out of Celtic in the SPFL and Scottish Cup in April.

There wasn’t a sniff of interest in Davies during the summer transfer window with John Souttar’s nightmare start to the season resulting in Davies getting his first outing of the season at St Johnstone on Saturday.

Micky Beale made six changes to the side that lost to Celtic a fortnight earlier with Davies teaming up with Connor Goldson ahead of the Europa League tie at home to Real Betis.

Spinning his recall, the former Preston defender told the Daily Record:

The manager has shown a lot of faith in me since he’s been here. It’s time I repaid that and put some good performances in.

I’m not sure what was said about me but as far as I was concerned I was a Rangers player and I wasn’t looking to move.

My priority over the summer was getting fit and getting back in the team, which I did up in Perth. The manager said I was an important part of what he was looking to do going forward. So I took that in and made sure I went and got myself fit. 

Sounding very much like James Tavernier, Davies added:

This is Rangers so you need to win every game. When you don’t, it’s about knuckling down, working together and sticking together. I back the manager. I’ve got 100 per cent faith in him that we can have a good season this year.

There’s a long way to go and he just needs people like me and others to put in strong performances for him. Hopefully we can do that.

    Jeez – What a bloody crawler… Ach well he can eventually follow Beale to Forest Green Rovers or Havent & Waterlooville or some outfit like that when the inevitable happens !

      More like Haven’t A Fukkinclooville! 🙂
      BTW, Liverpool must just love it when the new huns come shopping.
      Kent and then Davies according to the Daily Rancid and the like cost around £11 mill. between them.
      Just think about that! We only paid a wee bit more and got Jota and CCV.
      It’s just another fine day to be a Tim!
      COYBIG tomorrow night.

    Ben Davies as a signing, sevco would have been better with Windsor Davies from It Ain’t Half Hot Mum and Never The Twain.

  • John Copeland says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong ,but did Davies ever play for Liverpool when he was with them ? Something tells me he never ever played for the first team and so when nodding dog scoops try to big up his past ,it’s about as genuine as big fake Kris Boyd’s hair and teeth !

    Genuine question

    The boy that done this interview , Andy Newport , is he a journalist or an Ibrox PR guy ?

    He just does endless ‘ We’ll be back ‘ type interviews with current Rangers players and days of glory articles with ex huns

    • Clachnacuddin and the Hoops says:

      If he’s with The Daily Record his level of journalism will be that of ‘Newport’ County on a football level…

      No Celtic fan with a modicum of self respect should put a single penny in the direction of that gutter level rag !
