Steven Davis has point to prove if recalled for Rangers v Kilmarnock in cup

Rangers travel to Kilmarnock on Saturday evening in the Scottish Cup fifth round and will be hoping to avenge a league defeat against the same opposition from January.

Manager Steven Gerrard should be fielding a strong team to help the pursuit of his first piece of silverware, but making a few rotations for the cup could be wise.

The Light Blues should recall midfielder Steven Davis to the team, who was an unused substitute against Aberdeen at the weekend.

Davis, who is on loan at Ibrox from Southampton, hasn’t quite got back to his best since rejoining.

Davis made his first Gers appearance of the season in the defeat to Kilmarnock last month and failed to really dominate the centre of the park.

The central midfielder should be capable of creating chances and proving an excellent work-rate as part of a three-man midfield, but is still getting back up to speed in Scotland.

He’s an experienced individual that has improved the squad options for Gerrard and the Kilmarnock contest could be a huge chance for him to show why he should start more games.
