Rangers are reportedly closing in on a deal to bring Southampton midfielder Steven Davis back to Ibrox, and Celtic fans have been quick to react to the story on Twitter.
Steven Gerrard’s men are said to be keen to quickly conclude a deal for the Northern Ireland international, who has fallen completely out of favour with the Premier League club this term after six-and-a-half years on the south coast of England.
The Glasgow giants are only behind their Old Firm rivals on goal difference following their 1-0 win before the winter break, and Scottish Premiership title race is very much on as we head into 2019.
Celtic supporters took to social media to share their thoughts on the deal, and rather than laugh at their arch-enemies for bringing a 34-year-old to Ibrox to boost their title hopes, these fans were more concerned and troubled by the deal.
While one said “people laughing at Sevco going for Steven Davis know little about football”, another said “we are in big trouble here”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
People laughing at Sevco going for Steven Davis know little about football in my opinion HH

I’d have had Defoe at us. Him & Davis are a significant step up in class from their other dross that we couldn’t beat last week ?

As I was saying earlier ……. 3 top pros give them the experience to edge out struggling squad to the title – we are in BIG trouble here and anyone not agreeing , head ….. sand !

I agree. If Davis and Defoe are even 85% of what they were at best they will do a good job. We need some real quality added or we will throw this league away.

Davis and Defoe will improve them rapidly. I despise the Huns but I’m realistic aswell. They’ll be 2 huge signings for them. We need to get the finger out.

If we don’t sign some experienced players who are better than we currently have, I fear the league title will slip away.
Davis and Defoe will make a big difference to their side. Time for Lawwell and Rodgers to up their game.
