RANGERS midfielder Steven Davis hopes that the Premiership season will get back under way at the earliest possible opportunity - but only once it is safe to do so.

The Northern Ireland internationalist says that he and his team-mates are still following a strict fitness routine to keep fit for when football does return, and outlined his desire to avoid matches played behind closed doors.

"Hopefully this season can be played to a finish at the earliest but safest opportunity," said Davis.

"Rangers wouldn't exist without its fans, therefore I personally do not believe games should be played behind closed doors.

"We've been given specific fitness and dietary programmes to follow in the coming weeks to enable us to be in the best physical condition possible to be ready for the challenges of the current season being played out to an end.

"Football must be secondary right now and it's vital we follow the advice of the government to get this virus under control."
