Rangers have confirmed that veteran midfielder Steven Davis will miss the remainder of the season through injury. 

The Northern Irish international picked up a serious knee knock and will now not feature for the remainder of the campaign. 

Davis came on as a substitute during Michael Beale’s first game in charge as Rangers manager in a 3-2 victory over Hibernian at Ibrox. 

A club statement read: Rangers can this afternoon confirm that midfielder Steven Davis has suffered an injury to his knee and will miss the remainder of this season.  

“As always Steven has the best wishes of everyone at Ibrox as he embarks upon his recovery.” 

Meanwhile, Goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin knows Rangers need to keep on the winning trail under Michael Beale while the new boss puts his stamp on the team. 

The Light Blues’ slender 1-0 cinch Premiership win over Ross County in Dingwall on Friday night – thanks to a first-half strike from returning midfielder John Lundstram – was far from exhilarating. 

However, coming off the back of two exciting 3-2 comeback wins over Hibernian and Aberdeen, and during a time when some of his players are playing through the pan barrier while others are still making their way back from injury, it meant Beale has chalked up three wins out of three since he took over the Ibrox hot seat from Giovanni van Bronckhorst. 

McLaughlin, who replaced the ill Allan McGregor, believes Rangers can take increasing belief into the home game against Motherwell on December 28 before hosting Celtic on January 2. 

“It was a really positive result for us when all said and done,” he told Rangers TV. 

“We knew this period of games was so important and the main thing was to get the three points every single time and that’s what we have managed to do. 

“We have come through two other really tough tests since we have come back. It is going to build the confidence every single time. 

“There’s always going to be room to improve, we know that, under a new manager, new coaching staff, trying to get their ideas across to the players that haven’t worked with him before, there is lots of work to do. 

“But in the meantime you have to get those results. At a club like this there is no time to stop and wait and say we need time. It doesn’t happen. 

“So we are really pleased that we have been able to get through the games and now we go back to Ibrox for a couple and we will be really confident of getting another two wins.”
