Southampton midfielder Steven Davis says that he wants to return to Rangers before he ends his playing career.

Southampton midfielder Steven Davis has revealed that he would be interested in returning to Rangers in the latter stages of his career.

The Northern Ireland international was one of a number of players who departed the Scottish outfit when the club fell into administration last year.

"On the day it was announced Rangers were going into administration it was just a series of words to us until we absorbed the ramifications of what had taken place," Davis told reporters.

"I had just signed a new, five-year contract and it had always been my intention to honour that agreement and devote the largest part of my career to the team I considered to be one of the biggest names in world football.

"I loved the club and the fans but I had to take a decision which was best for me, my family and the remainder of my career. There was so much uncertainty, so I was delighted Southampton made an acceptable offer.

"If everything goes to the plan I have in my head I'd like to come back and play for the club again before my career ends. I still follow Rangers and they continue to mean a lot to me."

Davis scored in Southampton's 3-1 win over Manchester City last weekend.
