Any hopes that Steve Davis may have harboured of making his switch to Rangers a permanent one have been killed off by Roy Hodgson.

Davis who made his full debut for the club against Panathinaikos on Wednesday night, effectively jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire as he swapped Fulham’s relegation battle for Rangers’ title bid.

“Both are pressure situations but it’s nice to be at the right end of the table right now,” Davis said in the Daily Express.

“It is a different challenge for me because the boys have done exceptionally well to get us into the position we are in.

“I’m just trying to enjoy my time up here and hopefully win a few trophies.

“I spoke to the Fulham boss [Roy Hodgson] and he said it was a good opportunity to go and play but he wants me back in the summer.”

The 23 year-old was shocked to learn of his inclusion for the Uefa Cup game in midweek against Panathinaikos and did not expect to be given the nod so early into his loan deal.

Davis added: “I didn’t quite expect to get my debut so soon but it was a great night for me.

“It was very special, especially with it being a European night. I had a few butterflies, but I think it is always good to have them.”
