Evans expects Davis to be Rangers dangerman

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans is tipping Northern Ireland team-mate Steve Davis to be the dangerman for Rangers in Tuesday's Champions League clash.

• Captaincy days are over for Neville
• No regrets as he recalls Rooney
• Play Champions League fantasy
• Fantasy top transfer tips

Whilst Evans has been quietly establishing himself as a regular member of Sir Alex Ferguson's starting line-up in the absence of Rio Ferdinand, Davis has resurrected his career in the SPL after falling out of favour at Fulham.

However, Evans does not think it will be long before the Ballymena-born star, who started his career at Aston Villa, will be attracting admiring glances from the Premier League again.

"Steve is technically and physically 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.

"He started off brilliantly at Villa but it did not quite work out for him at Fulham. However, he could definitely play for a Premier League team."

Another international colleague of Evans', striker-turned-wide man Kyle Lafferty, will stand in United's way, although the hosts are overwhelming favourites to start their new European adventure with a win.

Wayne Rooney is expected to return after his surprise omission from Saturday's disappointing draw at Everton, with Ferdinand also in contention to shore up a defence that threw victory away by conceding two injury-time goals at Goodison Park.

"I think Rio will play on Tuesday night," Ferguson said. "It's a European tie at home and we've got to take advantage of that."
