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."
