Playing allows us to forget clubs worries - Rangers captain Davis

Rangers captain Steven Davis admits simply getting out on the pitch and playing is a massive release from the financial woes the club is experiencing.

The Glasgow giants, who fell into administration almost two weeks ago, have the supporters something to cheer about when the defeated Inverness Caledonian Thistle 4-1 yesterday and Davis said it is nice for the state of mind of the players to just be able to play amidst is so much off-field focus.

"I felt we really deserved three points. Going out and playing has actually been a bit of a release for us," Davis said.

"Throughout the week there is a lot of things going on and it's just hard to get away from the fact that the club is in administration.

"So it's great to get the chance to get out on the pitch, that's what we enjoy doing and it's what we're paid to do.

"It was really nice to win and we'll enjoy the result."

And Davis added that it is important for the players to get on with their jobs in the best way possible as they all face uncertain times at Ibrox.

"I don't want to talk about pay cuts," he added.

"The problem is, we know as little as anyone else because there is a real uncertainty surrounding the club.

"It's difficult to take but maybe we'll find out more this week. Everything seems to be up in the air - so we were just delighted to come here and get a result."
