Evans: Gers' Davis a star

Jonny Evans is tipping Northern Ireland team-mate Steve Davis to find a way back to the Premier League, writes Simon Stone. The pair will face each other tomorrow when Evans' Manchester United open their Champions League campaign against Scottish champions Rangers at Old Trafford.

The pair will face each other tomorrow when Evans' Manchester United open their Champions League campaign against Scottish champions Rangers at Old Trafford.

While Evans has been quietly establishing himself as a regular member of Alex Ferguson's team in the absence of Rio Ferdinand, Davis has resurrected his career with Rangers after falling out of favour at Fulham.

However, Evans does not think it will be long before the Ballymena-born star will be attracting glances from south of the border again.

"Steve is one of the best midfielders I have seen coming out of Northern Ireland," said Evans.

"He has fantastic ability and the Rangers fans love him. It did not quite work out for him at Fulham.

"However, he could definitely play for a Premier League team."
