Rangers colleague urges Lafferty to learn from past mistakes

Steve Davis has offered some advice to his Rangers team-mate Kyle Lafferty, who has never been far from controversy.

The 22 year old was sent off in the recent 3-0 victory against Hibernian along with opposing midfielder Kevin McBride and irritated manager Walter Smith in the process.

"Kyle knows what he has to work on. He also knows there comes a time when you have to learn from past actions. Hopefully those things are behind him now and he can move on.

"Kyle has had an up and down time at Rangers with various things, but if he can settle down and focus he can be the player we all know he can.

"I think he has been unfairly criticised or pilloried at times. He has become a bit of a target. That's possibly because of things he has done, most of the time because of a lack of experience.

"He is still young though and people forget that. He is only 22 so he is still maturing as a person and a player. He got a move to Rangers at a very young age and it was a big move for him. Things get scrutinised in the Old Firm, but Kyle is young and I hope he proves the critics wrong."
