The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and has been offered a new two-year deal to stay with Saints.

However, Rangers have been linked with a swoop for the Scotland international after failing with a bid in the summer of 2011 and Davidson is hoping to focus on playing football.

"I am enjoying playing for St Johnstone and the club has been great to me," said Davidson in The Herald. "I get on well with the manager Steve Lomas and the players.

"I have six months left on my contract and I can speak to clubs in January if anything comes up. But all I can do is concentrate on my football and leave the rest to my agent.

"We'll talk further this week. I know some of the details and it is a very good contract offer from the club. If St Johnstone said they didn't want me then I'd have to look elsewhere but it's great to feel wanted.

"The last time there was talk of Rangers it was more of a problem, even just walking down the street and going to the shops. I come from a Rangers family and I'm from a Rangers area so when they put in a bid I got a bit of stick from certain people.

"But I'll just get on with playing. It doesn't matter who you are linked with, you have to be professional enough to get on with your job."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
