"Growing up in Northern Ireland being a boyhood fan, my dream was always to play for the club first and foremost but to be inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside people I idolised growing up is a really special moment.

"The club have such a big following in Northern Ireland and my friends and I grew up as fans. We emulated the players as young lads growing up when we were playing in the park so to be in this position is beyond my wildest dreams."

Davis was ruled out for the rest of the season in December with a serious knee injury but is reportedly set to be offered a new contract with his current deal running out this summer.

His legacy as a Rangers and Northern Ireland legend is already cemented and he reflected on the “special times” when lifting the award.
