Southampton midfielder Steven Davis caused a bit of a stir this week on social media as he was off representing Northern Ireland during the September international break.

The 33-year-old missed a chunk of the 2017/18 campaign with injury only making two appearances for the club following the turn of January, and manager Mark Hughes has used him sparingly so far in 2018/19 as he got pitch time in the EFL Cup victory over Brighton and Hove Albion at the end of August.

He was on show in midweek for Northern Ireland though as they took victory over Israel, and Davis himself found the back of the net which would’ve been a confidence boost for him.

With semi-regular links suggesting a return to former club Rangers could be on the cards in the future, especially if game time isn’t forthcoming in the first half of this season, I’m not actually sure what the problem is here – he was hardly likely to say anything else yet you’d be forgiven for thinking he’d downed tools or refused to play.

I’m just pleased I’m not alone in not getting it.
