STEVEN DAVIS hopes Rangers can achieve success this term as they look to pick up where they left off under boss Steven Gerrard.

The Light Blues finished the season strongly as they recorded six successive wins and beat Celtic in the final Old Firm clash at Ibrox.

Davis missed the defeat to Kilmarnock on the last day of the Premiership but was fit enough to turn out for Northern Ireland in their European Championship qualifiers with Estonia and Belarus.

The midfielder is now in Portugal with the Gers squad and is encouraged by what he has seen so far this summer as Rangers prepare for a top flight title challenge.

Davis told RangersTV: “It was thoroughly enjoyable and I think all the boys enjoyed the style of play we were playing.

“We were dominating games, and for me personally, it was an enjoyable period although I was obviously disappointed to pick up an injury in the Celtic game which meant I missed the last game of the season.

“Overall, I think there was good progress made and a lot of positive signs, now it is about trying to build on them this season.

“I certainly think there has been a good level of progress and there have been some good additions made in the summer, so I think the squad is getting stronger and that is going to stand us in good stead and towards the end of the season we put in some really, really good performances and got good results.

“We know it is going to be another difficult year but I think there is a lot of confidence in the group that we can go and make it a successful one.”
