SOUTHAMPTON boss Ralph Hasenhuttl will back Steven Davis’ potential return to Rangers.
Davis, who has six months left on his contract with the Saints, has been in talks about rejoining the Ibrox side during the January window.
And at a press conference today, Hasenhuttl said Southampton are happy to help him with his ‘next step’ if terms are agreed.
“The fact is he has half-a-year contract here until the summer, so what we want to give him is a chance to make the next step,” he said.
“If there is a possibility, then we will help him to do so.”
Former Ibrox captain Davis left Rangers for the English side in 2012.
He’s made 193 appearances for the Premier League outfit, scoring 18 goals.
Hasenhuttl added: “He has done a lot for this club, and there we find a good solution where we have a win-win situation for both sides.’
Asked if the deal was close to completion in the next few days, the Saints boss added: “It can be. I am looking forward and if it is, then we will tell you.”
