ALLY MCCOIST has urged Rangers to deal in Steven Davis with the Northern Ireland international out of contract this summer.

The 37-year-old record appearance holder started in the 2-0 win over Hearts in the Scottish Cup final and his passing and composure helped Rangers get a firm grip on the game after half-time.

Davis had come close to a dramatic late winner against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final on Wednesday before the Germans won on penalties.

And McCoist reckons he is still a key member of the Rangers squad.

"I would keep him for another year, for sure," McCoist explained to Premier Sports.

"It's not about age, it's about whether you can make a contribution, and he certainly can.

"His fitness levels look great and he is still an excellent footballer."

On his own future, Davis said after Saturday's cup final: “To be honest, I really don’t know. We just said we would speak afterwards.

“It’s been such an emotional week, obviously with the European final. This doesn’t make up for it because it was a real, good opportunity for us, but we are delighted to win this.

“And obviously it was Jimmy Bell’s funeral on Friday, so it has been a really emotional week.

“I’m delighted we could finish on a high and we will sit down I’m sure over the next week and see where everything sits.”
