A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Steven Davis’s performance as the Gers extended their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s side beat Aberdeen 2-1. Alfredo Morelos scored twice for Rangers after James Tavernier left everyone stunned by missing a penalty during the first-half.
It was another important win for the Gers. And it appears that it was another superb performance from Davis in the middle of the park.
As shown by Whoscored.com, the Northern Irishman completed 122 successful passes during the game. Remarkably, that was 22 more passes than the home side managed between them throughout the entire game.
He also completed four successful tackles. That was at least twice as many as any of his Rangers teammates managed.
It is incredible to think that Davis – who earns £12,000-a-week, according to The Scottish Sun – turned 36 at the start of the month. There looks to be no reason why he cannot continue to be a key player at Ibrox for a while yet.
In fact, plenty of fans on social media have lauded the midfielder. Some have insisted that he is the best player in the Scottish Premiership.
It is clear that several believe that he is continuing to set the standards for Gerrard’s side as they continue to keep reeling off wins.
Here is what some of the fans were saying about Davis’s performance…
Steven Davis has been phenomenal so far this season best I’ve seen him since his first spell drives this team on at every opportunity

Shout out to Steven Davis, 36yrs old and showing the troops how to run a midfield.
Checked the surface today for studs or mouldies and he decided to just play in his slippers.
