Meh. He’s been great recently but with absolutely zero pressure. Let’s hope it works out.

At 34, Davis isn’t a player for the long-term but he will offer much-needed experience for the squad heading into next campaign.
After moving on loan in January, the midfielder did struggle for form, having failed to feature for Southampton much in the first half of the season.
Davis has gradually refound his game in recent weeks, including two excellent performances against Motherwell and Hearts, as well as another decent display versus Aberdeen last time out.
Gers boss Steven Gerrard had previously said that he wanted to secure the Northern Ireland captain to a long-term deal, and he has now got his wish.
