Rangers and Northern Ireland midfielder Steven Davis became the most capped British footballer of all time last night.
He made his 126th international appearance in a 0-0 draw with Bulgaria for Ian Baraclough’s side.
Although Davis didn’t get the result he wanted, that doesn’t take anything away from his outstanding achievement.
Rangers legend Ally McCoist was full of praise for Davis on ITV’s World Cup qualifying highlights show.
“It’s amazing, absolutely amazing,” said McCoist of Davis’ new milestone. “It really is.
“He’s a phenomenal player. He keeps himself fit, looks after himself. He was a credit to work with – a joy to work with.
“The same Steven Davis would come in every day, you knew what you were getting with him. He deserves every success.”
Lee Dixon added: “I know how hard it is to keep a club career going but an international one, as you get older, to have that consistency is absolutely amazing.”
Davis is now in the history books and can keep extending the British record, making it even harder to catch.
He’s been an outstanding servant to his country and a key part of Northern Ireland’s improvement in recent years.
What a season he’s had; helping Rangers get the title back from Celtic and now breaking a long-standing international appearances record.
