Davis: Rangers are on the up

Steven Davis believes Rangers are finally showing signs they are returning to top form - just in time for their crucial Champions League game against Unirea Urziceni.

The Scottish champions slumped to an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to the Romanians at Ibrox a fortnight ago, with results in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League far from inspiring either. Rangers were held to a draw against Hibernian last week before taking the lead against Dundee United only for Sunday's match to be abandoned at half-time because of the weather conditions.

"I think we are getting back to the way we are capable of playing," said Davis, who netted the goal at Tannadice.

"I think we are working harder off the ball as well, pressing teams and making it more difficult for them.

"We have shown that in the last couple of games but we have to keep that improvement going because there is still a lot of room to improve as a team."

Rangers suffered plenty of criticism in the wake of their thrashing by Unirea and Davis admits the importance of Wednesday's game cannot be emphasised enough.

"It's a massive game for us," he said. "If we are to have any chance of qualifying, we need to go out there and get the win.

"But we know from playing them that they are a well-organised team and a good side.

"Hopefully a bit of luck will go our way and we can go there and get a result."
