St Johnstone's Davidson not buying into Rangers transfer talk

St Johnstone midfielder Murray Davidson insists he is not bothered about transfer talk linking him with Scottish champions Rangers.

There were reports suggesting 'Gers made a £150,000 bid for his services in July, with their advances falling over, but Davidson says he is solely focused on returning from a ligament injury he sustained recently.

"The transfer talk was never an issue for me and I had no problem with the club," Davidson told the Perth Advertiser.

"The manager and the chairman rejected the bid from Rangers so I was never really involved. I have no problem with that.

"When I get back from the injury I intend to show why I have been getting linked with a club like Rangers. I have to take it as a compliment that they put in a bid. If anything, it will spur me on.

"It is a grade two medial tear and that usually means being out for up to eight weeks. But I am a quick healer and hope to be back in six."
